Many people use the term of care partner for any caregiving situation. We feel that you can use whatever term makes you comfortable and is right for you. My story is that for many years we were care partners with my Mom. We received love and care and help from her and she received the same from us. And slowly it was more and more about care for her and nothing back from her. Sure we received smiles and laughter. But at that point we were doing all the care and didn’t feel a partnership. It felt like we were caregivers. I feel you are genuinely care partner in the beginning and then you be you.
