"Courageous care partners recharge with self-care, striving for peaceful pinnacles
in patience, persistence, and positive 
changes, knowing when to conquer and when to comfort."

Gefeliciteerd! USA!

Jul 04, 2021 by Eileen Adler
On this July 4, many of us will celebrate the USA’s 245th Independence Day with family, friends, and fireworks, creating moments of memories and joy. Actually, the date should have been July 2 but it was two days later that the Continental Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence. In Dutch, gefeliciteerd means congratulations.

Creating Moments of Joy Along the Alzheimer’s Journey by Jolene Brackey explores moments that give us time to prioritize all the things we do as care partners. When we reach the end of our rope, we may exclaim that what we really want to do, is do everything right but Ms. Brackey advises us to start with one thing that will make US feel better and then write down ten things where others could step in to help.
