Spousal Caregiver Frustrated by Criticism for His Caregiving Choices

FatherDaughter_shutterstock_1195917298Anyone who's been a long-term caregiver has had this happen. People who are looking in from the outside have all kinds of thinly veiled criticism presented as advice and frankly, most of it unwanted. If this were easy, we'd have thought of it. Yes, they likely mean well (though not all do), but if we choose to keep the person with us in our home, or conversely if we feel that they would benefit from placement in a good facility, it should be our business, right? 

Read about this man's frustrating with the advice of others on Egosancares blog:

Minding Our Elders: Caregivers Share Their Personal Stories. “I hold onto your book as a life preserver and am reading it slowly on purpose...I don't want it to end.” ...Craig William Dayton, Film Composer
