Finding Humor in Caregiving

There’s no doubt about it: caregiving is stressful – and one of the best ways any of us can deal with this stress is through humor.  Renowned French photographer (and caregiver) Sacha Goldberger brings humor to caregiving through a collection of wild, wacky and downright hilarious photos of his grandmother.

“In a society where youth is the supreme value; where wrinkles have to be camouflaged; where old people are hidden as soon as they become cumbersome, where, for lack of time or desire, it is easier to put our elders in hospices rather than take care of them, I wanted to show that happiness in aging was also possible,” writes Sacha Goldberger in his book Mamika: My Mighty Little Grandmother.

And through costumes and spectacular photography, Mr. Goldberger does just that.  His grandmother’s personality and wicked sense of humor shine through a hilarous collection of photos.  Read more about Sacha Goldberger and his grandmother in this recent New York Times article:  http://nyti.ms/W8m6xC.

We hope you enjoy these as much as we did!

“This is a great product with just the right amount of protection, when and where I need it most.  Excellent shipping time and efficiency!” – Carolina from Palm Beach, Fl

“I trust this product with my sensitive skin.  It works very well and it’s so easy to just order it online at great prices.  Order arrives very promptly.” – Conne from Scottsdale, AZ

 “My dad is bedridden. It’s great for keeping him clean day and night. Delivery was prompt. Product arrived in good condition, Customer service was very helpful.” – Chynna from San Juan, PR.

 “If you need to use a product of this type, Prevail is the best I have yet encountered. It is soft and comfortable.  The service and delivery are outstanding. I had my shipment within 48 hours. I apparently received a batch that tore too easily and when I telephoned the shipment was replaced immediately with no questions asked and without my having to ask for it.” – M from Oceanside, CA

“Recently, my Mom became ill and we were introduced to the Prevail Pull up while she was in her rehab center. The pull ups are easier to use than the adhesive pads she used before, and she experienced no slipping, movement or leakage.  I couldn’t believe how quickly I received my order. The boxes were packaged well and arrived within 48 hours of my order.” – Shredder from Chandler, AZ

“I’ve tested many brands and styles and this one works just right for me.  Super-fast delivery!” – Ostomy lady from Chicago, IL

“Best use for me is nighttime. Rather than having to stand up and relieve myself in a plastic urinal 4-6 times a night, I just lie on my back to avoid spillage to the side and “go.” Booster insert, with rare exceptions, gets it all. I just go right back to sleep rather than tossing and turning.  Prompt delivery. Product in perfect condition. It all got to me on time at a price I can afford. I am a 78 year old stroke survivor living alone. This helps me greatly to stay in my own home.” – JoKer from Ocean Springs, MS

“Good product, just enough absorbency for my Dad.  Wonderful customer service! Helped me try to find a product that my Dad needs, and we found one on the website. Thank you!!! Very nice & helpful!!” – G from Iowa

“This product is perfect for a special needs child who is too big for diapers but still needs the diaper-like bottoms, when “Pull-Up” style doesn’t fit the child’s lifestyle. These are great because it gives GREAT protection! No more waking up soaking wet from leaky diapers. Also, no need to totally undress to change diapers. The diaper-like tabs make changing quick and easy for those who can’t be still long enough to go through a clothes change to change the diaper product! Love the absorbency and how it keeps fecal matter away from the child’s bottom! And I love how there are bigger sizes available to grow with the child!  Prompt delivery and product was packaged perfectly. Box fit in closet perfectly!” Mom of 3 Kids from Rolla, MO.

“Since I got this product for my sister, she is very well satisfied and will continue to buy this product.  Delivery was great and on time. Very pleased.” – Sheib from Detroit, MI

“I would buy this product again.  Fast service. Good price.  Easy.  Correct Size. Didn’t find any cons.  My delivery was very prompt, pretty much the next day!” – Mattie from Owasso, OK
