March Madness - Build Your Dream Team

Whether you watch basketball or not it's general knowledge that a basketball team has players with specific positions - point guard, shooting guard, center, power forward and small forward. Each of these basketball positions has their own roles and responsibilities. A point guard is highly skilled at dribbling and passing while a shooting guard is the most consistent shooter from all over the court.

While I realize this information will not help you win your March madness bracket I do know it will help you understand the same concept that applies to a basketball teams also applies to your loved one and family as you navigate the aging process. You need a team that will provide peace of mind, expert knowledge in areas unfamiliar to you and people who genuinely understand and provide help.

Because as the article states:"This caregiving race is a marathon and not a sprint. Equipping yourself for the long haul is essential. Just as you would never head out to sea alone, you shouldn’t start this caregiving journey alone".
