Caregiving is a universal concern. We will all serve as caregivers numerous times over the course of a lifetime. And, we will all need care at some point in time. So, there are some questions worthy of consideration. When, not if, you are called to companion a friend, family member, or client challenged by aging and/or illness, how will you respond? Will you (must you) assume full responsibility of care? Or, are you able and/or willing to share the responsibilities of care with other family members, friends, or caregiving professionals? Our approach to caregiving - and our preparation - determines our ultimate experience.

Caregiving. A journey we will all experience at some point in time over the course of a lifetime. For some, a journey to be repeated but never replicated. Each journey is unique. However, every journey of caregiving - whether as the caregiver or the care receiver - is greatly improved by being proactive. Being proactive about our health, our housing, our community, our support system, and our plans for EOL care. Furthermore, it is never too early to start planning for this inevitable trip. Consider the possible "what ifs" along the way and proactively plan a journey based on your needs, wants, and available resources. Care for yourself and others by design, not by default.
