As a caregiver, you are providing a valued and invaluable service to your loved one. You didn’t ask for it, but suddenly or gradually, here you are.


Tools for Care Partners:
• Keep it upbeat. Be optimistic, keep it fun and don’t dwell in the negative.
• Care. You can’t always give, but you should always strive to care.
• Time. Take time for yourself. Get enough rest.
• Time out. Take a time out when you become frustrated or angry. Resist the temptation to say something you will regret. Keep your dialogue positive and constructive.
• Calendar. Aid with planning and scheduling. Post the calendar in an obvious place.
• Advocate. Study, research, and ask questions. Knowledge is power.
• Communicate. Keep the communication lines open with your loved one and the full medical/support team.
• Ride share. Caregivers must assist in organizing rides whenever feasible.
• Enable. Continue to encourage self-reliance and independence.
• Exercise. You both need it every day – whether together or apart.

It is hard to elieve that 9 years ago next month we only had six people attend our very first meeting.   This morning June 25, 2016 we had 45 attendees.  God has been so good to our group

Today(Saturady July 28,2012) CCPSG turned 5 years old.  On July 28, 2007 we had our first meeting with 6 attendees and Dr. Bill Davis was our speaker.   Today we had our regular speaker meeting with Dr Davis as our speaker.  We had 53 in attendance.  After Dr Davis spoke we had an old fashioned ice cream social with BlueBell ice cream.  Five years ago it was beyond my wildest imagination that CCPSG would ever grow as large and as strong as we are.  There is a really good possibility CCPSG is the largest and most active PD support group South of Austin, Texas.  Today we have over 300 people registered with CCPSG.  It has been a wonderfully amazing journey.  I have never met anyone at one of our meetings or functions that I would not be willing to invite into my kitchen and sit down and have coffee with them.  Everyone is a great joy and pleasure to know and call friend.  I want to thank everyone involved with CCPSG for such a terrific job.  We are truly here to "Help Ease the Burden" of PD.
Hugs n Love to everyone involved with CCPSG
Tommy
