Hospital to Home Caregiver Blog
Read Fellow Caregiver's Stories, Submit Your Own...
Welcome to Shop Sage Products online story-telling corner. We've invited caregivers to tell us their caregiving stories. What better way to learn about caring for our loved ones if not from those who have done it before you, or are doing it with you? If you'd care to submit your own caregiving story, use our form to answer "How or Why Did You Become a Caregiver?".
There are two different Continue Care™ systems available—one for cleaning the mouth three times a day and the other for cleaning four times a day. Both systems contain two Suction Toothbrushes so you can brush teeth twice a day. The other packages contain Suction Swabs for additional oral care between brushing.
Christine and Liza’s story
My caregiving journey began about six years ago when my mother, Liza, developed a dual diagnosis of dementia and early Alzheimer’s. While watching my mother walk through life with this kind of disease, I’ve had to bear witness to something that’s gradually robbed her of memory, mobility, and speech.
For the most part, mom is non-verbal, but we still manage to communicate with each other—something I am grateful for. Even a small amount of communication let’s me know she’s still my mom. I know because small parts of her personality still shine through. Maybe it’s similar to the time when a child first communicates with a parent—how they coo and learn their syllables. It warms my heart in the same way when my mother manages to share even a few words.
It’s hard to see a disease take hold of someone you love and watch as it takes their independence away—especially because my mother has always been such a strong woman. She always stood up for what she believed in. And she taught me to do the same.
