Our experience is that the person who needs the most help can’t see it!
The first step is for the caregiver and/or care recipient to agree to allow others to help. As a friend or caring relative, don’t take “No!” for an answer. It is an emotional decision that for others may require a bit of time and patience to resolve. However, if there is a crisis, there may not be the luxury of time. Caregivers need to understand how critical it is for them to remain healthy—and friends who can help are the best answer.
