Are you taking care of an aging or ill parent or family member? How nice would it be to have a road map for your care giving journey? Join us at One Senior Place for a series of three workshops that will provide you with an overview of the six stages of care giving. You, the caregiver, will clearly identify your journey in these stages. These workshops will be presented by Toni Gitles, Certified Caregiving Consultant and Educator and owner of Heart Light Enterprises, LLC.
The Caregiving Years: Stages One and Two

In Stage One, you suspect a family member is going to need some assistance because of aging or health issues. Gathering information and preparation is key. In Stage Two, you are frequently giving your time with activities such as taking the individual to doctor appointments, running errands, helping with medication management and possibly even some hand-on caring.
The Caregiving Years: Stages Three and Four

In Stage Three, your involvement is almost daily, if not constant. This means your day is structured to be available as needed. There is an intensity that wasn’t expected and has you wondering if you can stick with it. By Stage Four, you have been through most everything and have found a sense of humor about the entire journey. You become the no-nonsense pragmatic caregiver, confident in your decision making and solutions.
The Caregiving Year: Stages Five and Six

In Stage Five, you begin to realize that you have done everything humanly possible, yet the end is likely near. Where you spend your energy changes. In Stage Six, your journey is over. Focus all of your attention on yourself. After all, you are dealing with the loss of the person you love as well as the loss of your identity as a caregiver. Perhaps the career you had before caregiving began is no longer an option. Perhaps, you may shirt your desire and priorities to helping other caregivers. It’s time to figure out what is next in your life.
