Offering care means being a companion, not a superior. It doesn’t matter whether the person we are caring for is experiencing cancer, the flu, dementia, or grief.
If you are a doctor or surgeon, your expertise and knowledge comes from a superior position. But when our role is to be providers of care, we should be there as equals. Red Cross has identified grandparents aged 75, and 85 looking after their disabled grandson aged 16 years old. His mother passed when he was 1 year old. Madala tries his best to keep his grandson active. The family lives far from nearest clinics. We appeal to the public, to help the way they can to support the family.
