Caregivers need compassion, support

Published 10:25 am Friday, August 26, 2016

Saturday morning, my granddaughter and I took her three young children to Ashland for a treat — breakfast and Petland.

When we came out and were waiting for my granddaughter to get the car, I saw a woman struggling to get a wheelchair lifted into her car. I admired her for bringing her young adult son out for breakfast.

I had seen her earlier in the restaurant and guess he had MS. I just wanted to remind able-bodied people to help caregivers when they are out like that. They have their hardships 24/7. I assume she was the mother.

I thought of her the rest of the day. Please help the caregivers.
