Truly Inspiring Caregiver Technique


Thursday, April 28th, 2016 3:34 pm | by San Diego Home Caregivers

Your family in San Diego may be weighed down mentally by the many challenges that suddenly surface when caring for someone who is in need of daily in-home care. The following is a creative caregiving technique using a short ritual that deserves a quick read:

Hoʻoponopono (ho-o-pono-pono) is an ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness. It’s a simple ceremony that works for both the primary caregivers and the loved ones they take care of because illness and disability hurt in many different ways and in more than one direction. Ho’oponopono is a way to merge the divide of hurt caused by something outside of each other's control. For example, an illness that hurts not only the person affected, but also those who love and take care of them. Any hurt caused on either side can be calmed and relieved through acceptance, love and forgiveness.

To begin the ceremony, face each other. Hold hands and look into each other’s eyes if you’re comfortable doing so. Then say the following:

I’m sorry that this illness has caused you hurt.

Please forgive me if I have let this illness carry me away. I know it is not your fault.

Thank you for being the one I love, for taking care of me and being there for me, and also for letting me take care of you too.

I love you for everything you are, were, and aspire to be and always will be, no matter what.

Then close your eyes and say to yourself:

I’m sorry that this illness has caused you hurt.

Please forgive me if I have let this illness carry me away. I know it is not your fault.

Thank you for taking care of me, being there for me and doing the best you could given the circumstances.

I love you for everything you are, were, and aspire to be and always will, no matter what.

We hope you enjoyed this wonderful tool and that your family here in San Diego can benefit from this inspiring caregiving technique.
