Visiting Mom, trying to connect, and giving her pleasant times is a bigger challenge than I ever expected. Trying to connect with her, failing, researching better options, and coming up short was the impetus for creating this podcast.
Not only did I realize that family caregivers didn't have time to do such in-depth research, I knew that a podcast would be an easy way to get support. It's what I looked for, and not finding it, I created it myself.
Equally important, I want to dedicate this episode to the two women I met at WerkIt, the podcast festival I attended in October 2019. It was their idea to dedicate an episode to what visits with my Mom are like. At first, I thought they were nuts. Of course, the more I thought about it, the more I realized the potential benefits.
For the most part, Mom has been fairly easy, but that doesn't make visits easy. Finding things to do that work for both of us has been a challenge. Overall, I have had to learn to be in Moms' reality. That's easier said than done. I thought I was doing this, but just recently, I've found a better way to do this.
Enjoy this episode. There are actual examples of what our visits are like the good, and the bad, and how I'm moving forward now that Mom is giving us more challenges.
