“There are only four kinds of people in the world: Those who have been caregivers, those who currently are caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need a caregiver. “
On the Frontlines of Caregiving
Whether you are the primary caregiver or one of many caregivers, your contribution to the quality of care a dying patient receives cannot be overstated.
Whether you are a professional caregiver or a novice doing on-the-job training, you are the one on the front lines doing the daily tasks that make the quality of care possible.
Whether this is a labor of love or a perfunctory assignment, you have an opportunity to have personal growth just by being in the presence of a dying.
The Gift Of Caregiving
I have not forgotten anyone that I have supported while facing the end of life. Each passing has been unique and had something to teach me.

Remember You Are Not Alone
Through the Dying Your Way End of Life Training we support primary caregivers to show up and “hold space” for their dying loved one.
Dying Your Way recommends a “team” approach so you, the primary caregiver, are not doing it all and teach you who to include in this team.
We encourage caregivers to learn tools of selfcare so you do not become the patient!
The more others realize and appreciate the importance of your role as caregiver, the more likely others will step forward to help.
