Teamwork by Necessity
Parents raising children with physical or developmental disabilities.
Children caring for aging parents with memory and mobility challenges.
Those caring for a loved one with a degenerative disease, cancer, injuries from an accident or military service, addiction issues, or any major challenge that makes it hard for an individual to function independently.
Being a caregiver for someone with exceptional needs is hard because we worry about our loved one’s health, safety and happiness. And sometimes we worry about our own health, safety and happiness.
The person with the special challenge has things the hardest, much as caregivers sometimes feel stressed by relentless worry. It helps to remember that we’re all on the same team.
When we’re tired or stressed, it helps to take a deep breath, maybe take a walk in a pretty place, and remember that we’re all in the fight together.
This week’s Hike Notes take visitors to Pillar Point Harbor – Mavericks Beach. This is a relatively flat walk that starts along the calm protected harbor water and then opens up facing crashing waves from Mavericks Beach.
The long list of Hikes can be found on the Quick View Hike List and on the main Hikes page. All past Insights posts can also be viewed in the Insights/Hike Update News archives.
