Nov 21, 2019 · The (not so) Hidden Costs of Caregiving in Caregivers

So what are the right words to use?

I may have posted wrong. I’m not too computer savvy. I’m the one that suggested she could wipe counters which always need to be done. How about sitting and giving her a newspaper if you get one. Sometimes the habit of reading newspaper comes back even though they aren’t reading. My sister can not tell you one thing she has read but pages slowly through a newspaper in the evenings. She also has a book of really easy sudoku puzzles. She can’t do them but she looks up the answers in the back and fills them in. It’s a little funny but hey it occupies her.

My sister will wipe the counters especially after meals and even before. It takes her a long time.

Brush them. We had one and we brushed her everyday and she never caused dirt trouble inside. We taught her the command “wait” and told her to wait outside the door while we brushed her or wiped her feet in the case of rainy mud. And then said “free” and she would go calmly inside. They are a super intelligent breed and love to learn commands and perform. Our daughter taught her “search” and “basket” and every night before bed she would search the house for her toys and put them away in the toy basket for us. Nice!!!!!

That’s OK. Probably most of us speak autocorrect. I do and enjoy reading your posts.

That was an amazingly thoughtful thing to donate your husband’s stuff to such a center. What a great model you are for the rest of us.
