Caring for our aging loved ones can be exhausting, frustrating, demanding and time-consuming. Since November marks National Alzheimer's Awareness Month, we're honoring Alzheimer's caregivers, but November is also National Caregiver's Month. Thanksgiving, as another November holiday, reminds me to think of ways that caregiving, tough as it can be, also offers caregivers a time to note the special blessings we've received when we are open to recognizing the gifts. After all, caring for one another is, in my view, one of the answers to "why are we here."
