  2. 2. “DUTY MAKES US DO THINGS WELL, BUT LOVE MAKES US DO THINGS BEAUTIFULLY.” —ZIG ZIGLAR
  3. 3. About 30% percent of the population will be a caregiver to some one at some point in their life. CAREGIVER LESSON #1: You are not alone. There are other people who know what you are going through. Reach out to them for support.
  4. 4. CAREGIVING LESSON #2: One of the hardest things to do while being a caregiver is also being sure to take care of yourself. Since your goal is to give your loved one the best care possible, it is critical to take care of yourself. About 23% of family caregivers report their health as fair or poor.
  5. 5. You will need and want help from others. Most of the time people want to help, but don’t know how they can best be of service. Caregiving Lesson #3: Don’t be afraid of asking for help from others---family members, friends, church members, work associates. People REALLY do want to help, so let them!
  6. 6. “Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all what you want.” —Zig Ziglar
  7. 7. About Dietrich Stroeh: J. Dietrich Stroeh’s life came apart after learning that his wife had pancreatic cancer. The Stage Four diagnosis took him on the roller coaster ride of his life. Overnight, this successful businessman became a caregiver powerless over the course of his wife’s illness. He had to face internal weaknesses and external obstacles in order to take care of her and, when the time came, lovingly let her go. Stroeh chronicles his journey in the release of Three Months: A Caregiving Journey from Heartbreak to Healing. This Kindle book takes readers inside the Stroeh household where home care, medical decisions and much needed laughter gave extraordinary shape to an unexpected and devastating illness. The book also provides easy to read care-giving tips and useful resources that Stroeh picked up along the way. Advocating for a loved one, caring for one’s self, being part of the medical team, and handling grief are only a few of the topics that are addressed simply in this first-person story.
