Caregiving Made Easy with the Sam's Club Caregiving Program.

Growing up the eighth of nine children was the most amazing childhood experience. I was always surrounded by family, fond memories and tons of love. That's why it was pretty much a no brainer  when the conversation came up of being a caregiver for my parents and with the help of an amazing support system and programs like Sam's Club Caregiver Program I proudly took on the role.

There I was 9 months pregnant when I got the call, It was my sister on the line telling me to get to the hospital because my mother was being brought in. This wasn't a new phone call for me but this was the call that changed my life for good. You see that was the day my mother suffered a stroke that would land her in the hospital for good causing her to never be the same again. It was over 3 years my Mom spent between the hospital and the rehab facility that became her home and over three years I did my best at caregiving for her. You see my mother was a very kind and loving woman and I took it upon myself to make sure that even though she was no longer able o care for herself that she remained that way. It's now been a little over a year since my Mom's passing but instead of drowning in my tears I instead focused on the beautiful life she provided me and find joy in knowing I provided her the same.

I have currently taken on the role of my Dad's caretaker but some may see it as him taking care of me. My father is 85 years old and I can proudly say living his best life. He drives, he cooks, he even picks my now toddler up from daycare daily and that's why I'm so appreciative to stores like Sam's Club for making my caregiving experience an easier and more enjoyable one for me.

It's at Sam's Club I can make sure my father has all his daily prescriptions and where we are both able to stay up to date with his health and wellness. I personally find Sam's Club to be both more convenient  and cost effective than other retailers as well. I mean where else can you go to get your daily meds and cake samples at the same time.

I take pride in knowing that thanks to the Sam's Club Caregiver Program I'm able to provide my father with the items such as Ensure and Glucerna that keep him strong and striving on a daily basis as well as products such as Depends and Poise pads should the need arise.

No one said being a caregiver was easy but I can attest that it's quite an amazing experience. Yes there will be days when you're over worked and overwhelmed but there are also days when you rejoice in the fact of being able to care for your loved ones. When thinking of becoming a caregiver I would advise you to just be prepared and take things day by day. Always be aware of what your options are try to keep an open mind. No one can tell you exactly what you'll experience from day to day but find comfort in the fact that you're taking care of someone you Love who undoubtedly loves you back!

Are you a current Caregiver? What are some of the highs and lows you've experienced and how has the Sam's Club Caregiver Program made it easier for you?

How to Relax, Relate and Release with Jigsaw Puzzle!

*This post is sponsored by Jigsaw Puzzle but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.*
I know we all enjoy seeing the super fly girl on the go but please allow me to be the first to tell you that slaying ain't easy! Between the constant shopping, picture taking, mastering trends, and having the pressure of always looking so perfectly put together it can be downright exhausting! So what does a girl do when she simply just can't slay another day, she turns to the Jigsaw Puzzle app!

Lately the Jigsaw Puzzle has been my go to when it comes to taking a break from the stress of everyday life. When running the business becomes too overwhelming, Jigsaw Puzzle, When the kids are at it again for the 100th time, Jigsaw Puzzle, When it's my me time, Jigsaw Puzzle, you get my drift. Puzzling Minds turn to Jigsaw Puzzle.

One reason I prefer playing Jigsaw Puzzles as a form of relaxation is because of the added benefits that come along with playing. Not only are they a great way to relax and unwind but they are also great for stimulating your brain, helping you stay sharp and on top of your game and are even great when it comes to time management making you feel like you've accomplished something great.

One of the things I love most is how the game offers daily puzzles and keeps things interesting. Jigsaw Puzzle offers intricate detailed colorful puzzle packs like mosaic, quilting patterns, or images of bustling European villages. I love the fact that a mobile game has such great MobilityWare.

Jigsaw Puzzle is great for puzzlers of all ages and offer over 10,000 eye catching HD Puzzles. Among it's many features , the game lets players choose to have up to 400 puzzle pieces, work on multiple puzzles at once, and make puzzles from personal photos! The hassle of cleaning off the dinner table to spread out your puzzle is a thing of the past. Now you can put together puzzles while waiting on your car at the car wash, during a sporting event, while relaxing on the beach, or even while lying in bed! It's amazing how playing the game gives you that same jigsaw puzzle on the table all spread out experience. We can thank modern technology for that!

Jigsaw Puzzle is currently the most searched Jigsaw Puzzle app on the App Store. I believe the fact that you can customize your music, chose from dozens of free backgrounds, and search for daily puzzles that align with your interest plays a major part in that. The game is also available on Google Play as well as the Amazon Kindle Fire, where it is particularly popular. If you're looking for the perfect opportunity to relax while challenging yourself to a brain teaser then Jigsaw Puzzle is definitely for you.
Have you turned to Jigsaw Puzzle as your new favorite relaxation method and if not please tell me what are you waiting for?
