Quotes for Caregivers

caregiver quotesPoems, songs, books, films, mantras, and inspirational quotes can help us all get through anything. We use powerful music to get a hockey team ready for a big game; and repeat encouraging mantras as we pound the treadmill to achieve a fitness goal. For caregivers, inspirational quotes can be very positive, and many caregivers place a favourite quote somewhere to see every day to remind them why what they do is so important to them – above the bathroom mirror, on the fridge, in their wallet, etc.

A lot of inspirational quotes that resonate with caregivers have come across my desk, so I thought I would make a list:
