care-management

I’m tired of caring for everyone and managing their issues and never have anyone who spare a thought for me. Simultaneously, I can’t possibly not care about the people around me. And when someone does bother asking what’s wrong, I get all awkward and uncomfortable.

The timing in which people enter your life is very important. 

We recently had to seek further care for my mother’s diabetes.  This is a tough disease and hard to control.  Dr. Celeste Thomas from the University of Chicago has entered our lives to help us understand, manage and care for my mama.
Dr. Thomas is a special person, she cares deeply and she is making a difference. 

 I thank her from the bottom of my heart for making my mama feel better,
for her gentle touches, her daily phone calls and for looking over her with the same love and kindness she would give her own mother.

-Well, it is easily resolved. There are any number of magical things my friend could do to prove it.
-Oh, yes? And what might they be?
-Yes

If you have ever been sick or had someone close to you sick, then you hopefully have also seen firsthand the outpouring of support that can come along with that. As a sick person though, receiving help can sometimes add to the stress of caring for yourself. And if you’ve been a “helper” then you know how truly helpless it can feel when someone you love is ill.

With this new care management app, a caregiver can ask for help with specific tasks using their social networks. So the task of doing the grocery shopping, writing thank you notes, getting the kids out of the house for an afternoon to take their minds off things - these tasks can be delegated swiftly and effortlessly.  

More information can be found here.

Every Thursday afternoon, we feature an app handpicked by our staff.

Look, I know no one cares, but somehow I managed to kill a mint, then over the course of the summer I painstakingly resurrected it. (Let’s not talk about how caterpillars have since gotten hold of it. IT CAN SURVIVE)
