I admire caregivers so much for being there for us, being
the warriors and volunteers and spouses; mothers, daughters, husbands, fathers or brothers, etc. Tiptoeing around us when
we're miserable. Putting up with our kicking and punching in the night or midnight wandering. How can you sleep when you think
someone is going to fall down the stairs at 3:00 a.m.? Not to mention that we get our memories mixed up and we're slow to
shop, make decisions, or even get up.
