Taking care of an elderly parent at home.
DonnaHarris continues today taking care of an elderly parent at home, her mother, who just happened to turn 100 years old on May 20, 2018. In her spare time, Lol, she supports other family caregivers and taps into the memories of days gone by, what’s happening today in their aging parent’s life and life struggles of reversing roles with our once vibrant parent and find ideas to make a tough journey a more joyous experience.
Some days Donna wonders who she is. Can you relate? What started as a way to regroup from an ugly divorce quickly turned into a combination between love and duty as Donna became more and more gripped with the responsibility of the role of being the primary caretaker to her mother when the family doctor told her that her mom could NOT live alone any longer.
Throughout Donna’s website on both her pages and posts, Donna may drop knowledge bombs to help you understand the strategies and mindset needed to stay sane because it can and probably will become crazy very quickly dealing with many issues of the elderly. That’s where the name came from Donna The Crazy Caregiver.
Her ultimate goal is helping you cut through all the noise and frustrations found in so many issues we face today as we keep our parents at home with us and not in a nursing home. The blog posts are designed to only focus on what she finds works or doesn’t work from personal experience, not what some professionals say that’s never had the concern of caring for an aging parent themselves.
