We’ve read about it on our Facebook page and we know first hand from friends and relatives the heart ache when a loved one passes away after retirement. It’s really sad knowing that couples, after years of marriage, working, raising a family, and finally retirement, suffer a loss and have to continue alone. There is no easy way to manage, although they must, when a spouse becomes ill after retirement. Keeping doctor’s appointments, dispensing medicine, cooking, cleaning, bathing, the tasks go on and on sometimes with no help.
EMOTIONAL TOLL ON THE PRIMARY CARETAKER
You must stop to consider the emotional toll it must be on one spouse to take care of their loved one. It’s not easy. Raw emotions run high from the person who is ill and does not want to be, and the primary caretaker who is struggling to provide the best care they possibly can while watching their other half slip away. We pray for their stability and try to offer kind and encouraging words to ease their pain.
WE FEEL YOUR PAIN AND ARE HERE TO SUPPORT YOU
Wise Boomer Chics, we are getting older. We will experience joy and pain as single women, friends of married women and those who have lost their husbands to illness. We feel for them not having the opportunity to experience the freedom of retirement to travel the world, grow a garden or do whatever it is that makes them happy.
We are here for you!
