Details: You know how the things your mom repeated the most are the things that you still hear ringing inside your head? I know that feeling oh too well because I was my mother's primary caregiver for the last 10 years of her life. I can still hear her saying things like, "when given the choice of 'either/or', usually the best answer is BOTH!" Or "all is well", which she said at least ten times each day, even on days when it really did not appear to be. Now that she is no longer physically with us, I figured I would explain the meaning behind her most popular sayings to keep her spirit and her memory alive in all those that learned her story. This is Mommy Philosophies: Lessons I Learned from my Mom During Caregiving. As the middle child and only girl in her family, Vivian Geary has been a long-time observer of humans. She watched and learned her place in her family and her community becoming astute at seeing the needs of others, empathizing, and moving to help fill those needs. She created Caring for Family Caregivers as a resource to others providing caregiver coaching and support groups for family caregivers. As a speaker and trainer, she conducts seminars and classes on a variety of topics pertinent to all aspects of the caregiving journey.
