We tend to put the pressing needs at the top of our list. Our caree certainly has significant, sometimes critical, needs. As caregiving lasts from one year to the next and into the next, we can’t keep going in a healthy way if our life revolves around only one priority. Others we love must be priorities, too, otherwise we sacrifice those relationships. We must be a priority, too.
In this class, we’ll help you find your way to your priorities.
