My father has nine lives. He’s cheated death - and astounded doctors who gave him weeks to live - numerous times. In the process, he’s been in the hospital too many times to count and faced several life-or-death situations. Many times, he was too weak to grasp all the nuances of the medical mumbo jumbo. “Talk to my daughters,” he’d tell the doctors wearily.

Have you ever bought a car without haggling over the sticker price? Or paid “asking price” for a house? While most people don’t think twice about negotiating for everything from to washing machines to garage sale discoveries, few would dare bargain when entering an independent living facility.

The other day I went to visit a friend who has Alzheimer's Disease at her Assisted Living Facility. She appeared to have declined since my last visit. She was walking very slowly and tentatively, she shut her eyes several times and had to be prompted to open them, and her voice was almost inaudible.

If you’re a caregiver you know just how stressful it can be, especially in the beginning when you feel so overwhelmed. That’s exactly how my sisters and I felt when we were caregivers for my father. Had we been more prepared, many of the difficulties and crises that we experienced could have been anticipated and resolved much more quickly, and life would have been a lot easier for all of us.
