Day 1809: Caregivers

Today’s title is inspired by this photo


and by all who give care, including my co-worker Janice.



Janice, a caring nurse who gives great care, loves purple, and she took care to show me her purple Christmas tree yesterday.



Here are other items Janice has carefully placed where she gives care to patients.







Janice, who obviously cares, always autographs her work with excellence.

Later in the day, I saw my excellent care-giving Primary Care Physician, Dr. Laura Snydman. She cared enough to tell me that the excellent care my very unusual heart has been given by caregivers from Boston to Minneapolis has paid off. With good care, my caregiving heart should last many more years.

Do you see any caregivers or caregiving in my other photos from yesterday?










I now care to give you this funny cat video that might lower anxiety as much as (or even more than) exercise:

As always, I give caring thanks to all who helped me create this post and — of course! — to you, for the care you give.

  1. My younger sister Elizabeth bears the brunt of caregiving for our Mum

  2. Really good advice, Ann 🙂
    Thank you for the beauties too.

  3. It’s a sad thing to see caregivers described as “the invisible workforce”. They are, in my experience, very visible indeed, although too often underappreciated.

  4. Yay for the good news from Dr. Laura.

    I agree with Christopher about caregiver visibility. Caregivers (the good ones) are the people I see and remember and wish I had better ways of thanking.

  5. Your Janice is a wonderful person for many reasons, not the least of which is her love of purple (a fave of mine, too). And the fun cat video shows me that our Daisy isn’t the only cat who plays hide and seek!

  6. It sCAREs me when I took care of my dad when he had cancer of the throat many years ago. The experience is a reminder that life is too short. And it’s important to be happy and to care for those around you. BTW, I love the funny cat video. LOL! ( ◜◒◝ )♡

  7. We just passed the first anniversary of my dad’s death and I had the opportunity to remind and commend my mom on her excellent caregiving. He had Parkinson’s and in the year since he passed, she needs to be reminded from time to time how she did so lovingly provide care for him that allowed him to remain at home. My daughter is a nurse. Professional caregivers are just amazing people when they embrace their role and effectively comfort and encourage others. Funny videos and humor anywhere I can find it is certainly effective in my life! Lovely post, Ann!

    Happy Holidays guys, 6 days to go before Christmas
