Remember When – Looking Back on Your Caregiving Journey – Smilecast 30

Remember When

I have had some time now to look back and remember when I was a caregiver to mom who passed away June 2, 2016. When the journey ends it can be confusing. And the last days of her life were intense, with hospitalizations, surgeries and hospice. Did I do the right things? Would she have been proud? In hindsight, yes I did with the enormous help of my wife. We had two wonderful services for mom, one in NC and one in Philly and everyone remarked how lovely and dignified they were. I have written often about her passing in hospice and how dignified and peaceful that was. So when I remember when, I remember with fondness and the confidence and comfort that, while it did not seem like it at the time, but I was doing all the right things.
