Caregiving a Full-Time Job
This month we celebrate family caregivers and the love and dedication of caring for a loved one living with dementia.
In this feature story, we highlight a caregiver who lovingly cares for his mother Maria. After his mother was diagnosed with dementia, Dallas resident Tech Guerrero left his job to become her full-time care partner. In this heartwarming and honest video, Tech Guerrero talks about his mom’s dementia and how it affects everyday life for his mom and family.
Tech states, “We are so fortunate to have her with us but we have to do the happy birthday song like 3 or 4 times so that we can remind her what happened. And you know what she told me something very wise I am still learning from her, she said I don’t remember what happened this morning but I live for the moment. I am still learning from mom that I need to live for the moment.”
