THE KEY
TO A SUCCESSFUL JOURNEY

ACCEPTING HELP

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.

Why Accepting Help Makes Sense For:

The Caregiver:

  • is already overwhelmed and the stress is affecting his or her health in a negative way
  • won’t continually have to ask for help
  • needs to go back to work or school
  • can find support for others in the family. When someone is ill, their entire family is hurting

The Person Needing Care:

  • can experience a better quality of life through the support of others who care
  • has an illness that will progress and require increasing amounts of care
  • has no family nearby (or at all) can benefit immensely having a “created family”

The Individual Group Participant:

  • may never have been a caregiver. Yet he or she can learn in the company of others who have the skill or past experience
  • can discover purpose or gain a new perspective on life during the experience
  • may become aware of strengths within themselves that they never knew existed
  • will experience firsthand what a group working together is capable of achieving

WHAT DO PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN
A STC CAREGIVER, CARE RECIPIENT
OR GROUP MEMBER SAY

“But the best gift Share The Care gave to me personally was the gift of time. The program allowed me to spend more quality time with Kevin. I knew my time with him was limited, and I didn’t want to waste it going grocery shopping or running to the cleaners. I wanted to be with him as much as possible.

While a caregiver to Kevin, I was also the mother of a young child. I often felt torn between caring for Kevin and our daughter Alina. I made the decision to ask our Share The Care group to help with Alina’s extracurricular activities. Volunteers came through, and their help brought me great joy.”

~ Jodi O’Donnell Ames

“I was still very weak and I could only attend half of the meeting, but it was very powerful and it made me very happy. I felt a greater degree of security, as though I was part of something bigger. I learned how wonderful and compassionate people could be. I didn’t feel like a burden because I realized that people get something valuable for themselves out of helping out.”

~ R. Stevens

“I look at life differently now. I spend more time with positive influences, try to enjoy life more and don’t get as upset with things that in the past would have greatly upset me. Everyone, once in their life should have the opportunity to experience people working together to help other people. There’s no better fulfillment in life than to know that maybe you made one hour, one day or more a little brighter for someone.”

  ~ J. Ambrose
