  • Hot fun in the summer time.... Music fans, you are already humming along to that the classic Sly & The Family Stone song aren’t you? (You'll thank me when you wake up at 3AM with that kicking around in your head). But, for some family caregivers who might be accessing supplemental services from a state and/or federally funded agency, that 'fun' may be limited to ONLY the song.

  •   Congratulations! You have become a family historian. when did THAT happen you ask? ...

quote

“There is only so much you can learn without knowing what there is to learn. Keeping it REAL Caregiving is my way of lending a helping hand.

My journey of caring for my elderly mother in the last years of her life opened my eyes to the need for a more coordinated, holistic, supportive and healthy way for all of us to ensure our loved ones have the best care possible in their final chapters.”

Julia Yarbough

Founder, Keeping it REAL Caregiving

Testimonials

“Julia, thanks so much for the valuable information regarding care for our handicapped son.”

Barbara I.

“Julia was able to give my mom and I some direction and assistance from her past experience with her own mother. Not even knowing where to begin Julia gave us a great deal of suggestions and guidance.”

Denise R.

“Figuring out caregiving for your elderly parents can be overwhelming. Julia helped cut through the clutter and noise to get to the heart of what those of us who are caregivers need: resources and information. Thank you for what you do!”

❤️Warm & Fuzzy or Cold & Distant? What kind of personality type are you and how does that impact your caregiving style?

What made me ponder that question and then blog about the topic?

As many of you know the #KIRC creator is Emmy Award-winning journalist @julia.yarbough who also spent many years as a family caregiver.

Now the mission is to educate others, raise awareness and move into the advocacy arena as well.

So you won’t find any trendy dancing or “challenges” taking place here but I HOPE more people will put as much attention into what their plans are for caring for a loved one or elder (or themselves as they age) as they do how many new  followers they have! (BTW- follow us!- LOL)

♦️This topic came up for two reasons:
1. Memories of a good friend kicking around in the head
2. Visiting several different caregiver groups on FB there was a pattern- some were super W&F; others were practical and filled with info on how to roll up your sleeves and get to work- much more C&D.

It got me thinking- is one style better or more effective than the other- or are they equally important?

📝Check out the latest BLOG with #KIRC to weigh in.

➡️ https://keepingitrealcaregiving.com/blog-warm-and-fuzzy-or-cold-and-distant/

We are just getting started and invite all of you to join in this conversation! 

Would also LOVE to connect with some insurance pros @vickiefrazierwilliams?? to learn more about what steps we should be taking to have our $$💵💰in order!

Would love to hear your thoughts and feedback/ seriously check out the blog and website and let me know what you are doing to prepare??? Anything? Take it from someone who has lived it- you should!

We’ve all heard it said there are no accidents.

So if you all of a sudden discover you have found yourself in the role of caregiver for a loved one- embrace it! 

The sooner you accept this new reality the faster you can make decisions about the next steps!
