This is excellent and once again reminds me how lucky we are to have HABIT and all of Mayo's HABIT team in our lives! If I had to pick my #1 wish in this list it would be that the provider allow me, as the caregiver, separate time to share concerns privately. There are so many times that I don't want to bring up something that might be upsetting to my husband OR I need a fuller explanation and I'd rather have it privately… I don't think I have ever seen one health care provider that allowed time to talk to me privately about my observations or concerns. I've learned to use the portal freely to share my concerns and observations and to ask for information.

From all of the talk about Habit here, I so wish that I could participate but the only way I might is if I'm ready to fly some distance for it. If I had the time which I currently don't, I would try to find the equivalent of a Habit in NYC. At any rate, I think what Debbra says here about time for the partners is so important. A rationale, for working with the partners, if it were needed, is that doing so further helps the person with MCI.
