I have a fantasy about an island or a place where our loved ones who are ill and all of the caregivers can live together, helping each other as we help our ill family members.
They say it takes a village to raise a child, imagine any one of you helping my son and me helping your loved ones. Sometimes they listen better to strangers, and they would never ever feel alone or abandoned.
They would also be in a world without stigma & judgment because there will be many others just like them. And we, as caregivers, would have an unlimited amount of emotional & mental support.
Also a place with NO HIPPA laws, doctors readily available for a crisis situation, and people who are trained and willing to jump in to help our loved ones.
All of us contribute the same amount each month to cover expenses for food, shelter, clothing etc.
Right medicine and tons and tons of love from ALL of us, our loved ones drowning in so much love and care…
I know this is just a fantasy, because I do daydream about a better world for our afflicted loved ones, but imagine if there was such a place! If only…
