In praise of caretakers
When a person is seriously ill or injured, it is easy for the caretakers to get overlooked as we focus our sympathies and attention on the stricken person. But even when it is a labor of love, caretaking is hard work, unending and exhausting in many cases. Next time you visit an ill person, make it a point to offer the caretaker some concrete help: bring along a home-cooked meal, do the laundry, or spell them for an afternoon so they can run some errands or simply take some personal time. Let’s take care of the caretakers in our midst—we will need them ourselves some day!
