(Dedicated to Caregivers)
I need a hand with pulling my pants up please.
I need you to hold the glass and straw for me, I’d like a drink.
I could use a shift in bed, can you turn me on my side please?
I’d like to take a nap, can you put my BIPAP on?
I’m done on the toilet, can you clean me now?
I’m feeling anxious today, can I have one of my pills please.
I’m hungry please give me a shake through my feeding tube.
I’m tired, hold my hand please.
I need you for everything.
I need you to live.
I have you at my side…Thank You!
We all need others’ presence, and NOW is all we have. As a caregiver, I thank YOU for seeing ME, not just because you depend on me, but because if the tables were turned, you would care for me as much as I care for you.
