    I have heard the prayer by Mary Maxwell before & I laughed again just remembering. The Bible says a merry heart doeth good like a medicine. She is very funny! I am becoming my husbands care giver, at 84 he is loosing his eyesight. I am doing all the driving, which I don't enjoy doing, it makes me nervous, especially since my husband is becoming an excellent Back seat driver.

    My husband is loosing his eyesight at 84 years of age. I am his caregiver & I will be 83 next month. Laughter is good medicine. God gives strength!

    As a caregiver (retired in 2013) twenty years total. I decided to write six short stories titled Memories of 'Old Friends'. I used different names for the clients. If you are interested in reading them, I will be glad to forward to your E-mail.

      Hi Bernice,I am currently taking Health Care Assistant Program at Capilano University in North Vancouver, BC. I've never had any experience taking care of an elderly or seriously ill person. We are still in the theory stage of our program and will have our practicum by end of September this year.It would be nice if you can share with me your "Memories of Old Friends" as I am curious.Thank you.Chai
