I became caregiver to my father after the passing of my Mother.  The biggest challenge is having enough energy and the reward is that you got it done. Advice I would give to other caregivers is that the power of prayer is the best stress reliever. Caregiving has taught me how to be humble.

Being a *Fearless Caregiver is when I need to get my point across, I always managed to do so. 

*Fearless Caregiver is a term coined by Today’s Caregiver and is the title of their Fearless Caregiver Conferences and Profiles.
