How can I find the time?

But I Work

Oftentimes, I have heard people say, "I don't have time to help care for an aging parent. I work."

So did I!

I've always practiced the philosophy that we make time for the things that are important to us.

Take ten minutes from your day to visit your loved one.
On your way home from work, drop by or call, just to make certain he or she is all right.
Do something silly, just to make your loved one laugh.

These tiny "little things" will mean so much to you, and to your loved one.
