I care for both my parents and wonder why the same people who show love and concern for my mother and father ignore my feelings and needs. Don't I have rights, too?
- Martha, Ft. Pierce
Yes, you and other caregivers have rights and we urge you to claim them. A right is a privilege, a basic freedom to do what you want in a particular situation. At the very minimum, your rights include:
- Personal time to maintain your own quality of life
- Physical and emotional respite
- Respect from your parents, family members and health care professionals
- An accurate diagnosis and appropriate follow-up healthcare for both you and your parents
- The freedom to seek help whenever you need it.
Do not let others discourage you from fulfilling your right to maintain a balance in your life.
