Andrea Rovazzi – From spouse to caregiver. The complexity of locating a normal’ that is‘new.
Andrea Rovazzi ended up being an employee that is full-time mom, and spouse. She never expected she would take from the role of the caregiver so at the beginning of her life – let alone at all. Her life changed extremely unexpectedly on 21 st , 2015 when her husband was injured at work after suffering a heart attack and going into cardiac arrest december. Her spouse was later clinically determined to have post-concussion problem.
Just like a great many other caregivers who will be place in the situation that is same Andrea didn’t first recognize she ended up being a caregiver:
“I became simply doing the thing I needed to do – he is my hubby. I did son’t understand I became anything that is doing associated with the ordinary… I did son’t realize I would personally qualify as being a caregiver. The truth had been that their care and health had been at the top of my brain twenty four hours a day…Every waking minute we was researching, reading articles, scheduling and going to appointments. It’s awful to look at some body you adore suffer, therefore I caused it to be my objective in an attempt to find just what would end my husband’s suffering. That was included with its downsides because we wasn’t staying in the minute. I wasn’t being conscious of just what we had that I became a caregiver I happened to be in a position to better accept all of that went directly into being one.
