The “baby boomers” of the world have quite a legacy to carry out. We are now the “Sandwich” generation caught between raising our children and caring for our aging Parents, there’s an ever growing need to juggle much more than we ever dared to think about. As some of us enter our 60s, many of us are faced with extremely tough decisions which may also include our spouses long-term care as well. Nothing is guaranteed. What is needed is a place to go to download from the stress and strain of taking care of everyone else, including pleasing your employers, while managing not to neglect yourselves in the process. You’re important, too! You need to feel free to voice your fears, your needs and seek self healing in a nurturing environment; sharing with those who are currently and have recently walked in your shoes.
Help is available, it’s all around you…but you have to seek it out. You have to ask for it. You need replenishment and validation. That’s why BOOMERS 'R HEROES was formulated….to help you seek help for yourself….to get a respite from your care-giving duties, thereby, regaining a positive life perspective. Your voice, as a care-giver, will be heard.
My name is Jean Kirkley and I am a Hero and so are YOU.
