Caregiving Is My Life

Her average day of caregiving starts at 6am and often does not end until 10pm. Gunn Leater is also a recovering alcoholic who is committed to her hard-won sobriety despite the stress and exhaustion of caregiving. She gets a small dose of respite when her father attends a local adult day health care center three days a week. But state budget cuts may put an end to the Medi-Cal payments that have made those weekly visits possible. Through it all, Gunn is buoyed by her deep love for her father and family and her faith.

Gunn,
I understand your uncertainty of your future, I too have those fears. I'm going on 50 years old and I wonder who would hire me at my age. I do lack an college education so I am trying to juggle my time in caring for my parents and getting a higher education. This is how I change these fears into action in doing something for myself (but it's not an easy task). My thoughts and prayers are with you and all caregivers because we know personally the challenges care giving can bring.
