(OPEN):
THIS HOLIDAY-SEASON MAY BE A GOOD TIME TO TALK WITH YOUR LOVED-ONES, ABOUT CAREGIVING.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO STELLA HYDE--A VOLUNTEER WITH "A-A-R-P PENNSYLVANIA"...

(HYDE):
"
CAREGIVERS SHOULD REMIND THEIR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS THAT THEY AREN'T ALONE.  BEFORE STARTING THE CONVERSATION, THOUGH, IT'S GOOD TO OBSERVE AND GATHER INFORMATION ABOUT ANY CONCERNS--THEN RESEARCH OPTIONS FOR BOTH SUPPORT AND CARE.  ALSO, THEY SHOULD NEVER BRING UP A CHANGE, UNLESS THEY HAVE REALISTIC ALTERNATIVES TO OFFER.  THEIR ROLE IS ALWAYS TO SUPPORT THEIR LOVED-ONES, AND TO HELP THEM BE AS INDEPENDENT AS POSSIBLE, FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE--NOT TO TAKE OVER THEIR LIVES.  THAT'S WHY IT MAY BE HELPFUL TO ASK FOR INPUT; TO TRY AN INDIRECT APPROACH, FOR TRICKY SUBJECTS; AND TO AVOID PUTTING ANYONE ON THE DEFENSIVE.  A-A-R-P'S 'CAREGIVING RESOURCE-CENTER' OFFERS FREE, ONLINE TIPS AND RESOURCES; IT ALSO CONNECTS CAREGIVERS WITH PROFESSIONALS AND EXPERTS."
