It took me a very longtime to accept the fact that my Seenagers (Seenager: one that has seen a lot in life and is over the age of 50 is a Seenager, or a senior teenager who is redefining the way they age.), who I loved, did not have anyone else around to help them, and that I would have to be the one to step up and be their primary caregiver. My caregiving experience was different for all 4 and lasted from weeks to years.
The care giving role was incredibly tough for me I found watching people I love deteriorate physically and mentally traumatic at times. On the other hand I found it to be an opportunity to express love and get closure. So hindsight being 20-20, I would definitely volunteer again to be their primary caregiver.
That is the end of my series – Caregiving For Seenagers. Wishing a healthy and loving journey.
