Beyond Dollars

Each of us has defining relationships in our lives; with our parents, our spouses, our children, and our colleagues.

We even have relations of sorts with our accomplishments, our achievements, and our success. And we have relationships with our own futures. We think of them as relationships because they mean something to us – and we are committed to them.

The Ripple Effect
We may understand that there is a financial impact to helping provide care, but there is more to the equation, and it goes far beyond dollars.

There is a ripple that can touch a primary caregiver, a secondary caregiver, their families and their futures. While a loving and selfless act, accepting or taking responsibility for another individual’s impact on our own lives, and on our families’ lives.

No matter how willing we are, no matter how heartfelt our promises are, our caregiving commitments can affect marriages, family dynamics, work commitments, financial stability and other building blocks of our own futures.
