The Working Daughter Manifesto

The working daughter manifesto is our battle cry. This is the way we balance eldercare with career and kids and life. As a result, we make this life work for us.

    I LOVE THIS!!!!!! I need to share with all my Midlife friends. It’s easy to forget how strong and resilient we can be. This is a great reminder why we must stay strong!!!

    Right now I am at a fork in my caregiving road.
    Work is at the point where the leaving and call outs is at an end.
    Mom is 83 and is in a moderate stage of Alzheimer’s. She also has many more health conditions.
    I am torn between it bring time for a nursing home and continuing my sister daycaring fir her three days a week.

      Such tough decisions! Approach your decisions with equal parts compassion and courage. Compassion for your mother and the courage to do what’s best – where will she get the best level of care?

    I like this! I’m not a daughter to the people I’m caregiving but I’m their granddaughter. Sometimes I feel like I’m the caregiver to my mother or else she’d be more stressed than she already is trying to take care of her parents and work a very overwhelming full time job. Thank you for this!

    I love this resource so much! I have an 18 year old that just went to college and I lost both my parents this year. My sister was their primary caregiver living in the home with them. I drove the 2 1/2 hour trip(one way) at least once a week for an overnight to support my sister and have time with my parents. I felt the benefits of being able to be there with my parents, but so guilty that I was not more present for my daughter as she prepared for college. I wish I knew of this source sooner, but I will certainly pass it along to the many others I know that will also be encountering this situation. Do you have Any advice I can share with friends that are working, raising kids and caring for parents regarding self care? Thank you so much
