Life is not perfect

Being a Carer for an elderly person who has disabilities common with age such as deafness, dementia and inability to walk without an aid, I know that we have to accept the reality of each situation as life is not perfect but indeed very difficult at times. It is helpful to meditate over grieving when something is taken away or lost, such as physical health or ability to control your own life. The importance of incorporating a little fun, exercise, kindness and self care in your life is essential for happiness and a feeling of achievement. We all need to eat healthy to keep up our strength and this applies especially to the elderly. It is hard to think positively when you know your body and mind are deteriorating and doing a creative activity can greatly increase your self worth and quality of life. It also improves concentration. As a Carer, I can only do my best to help the person I am caring for and also have to accept the fact that I will also be in the same situation when I get older. Hopefully, someone will extend a helping hand to help me through my twilight years.
