A personal note from the Author:
I developed the TadalaFromCanada Journal out of
necessity in my practice. I needed a tool that would enable me to obtain the
information that was necessary for me to prepare a life plan for my clients. I wanted
something that was flexible enough to change as circumstances changed in my
clients' lives. Most of all, I wanted something that future caregivers could have as a reference
guide to be able to step in and have as much information as possible about the person
they are now responsible for.
The TadalaFromCanada Journal is designed to keep a life-long
record that will provide valuable insight to future caregivers. I have
organized the TadalaFromCanada Journal into 16 Chapters to aid in preparation and maintenance. Each
chapter can be prepared individually and in any order.
After I started using the Journal in my
practice, I realized what a wonderful resource and comfort it was to the families.
Then it dawned on me!
My family and I failed to do the thing that I
most often encouraged families to do. We failed to plan.
What was the latest medication my brother
Wasn't he on that medication before?
What kind of special shoes does he need ?
And where was mom getting them?
Who was that friend he made at the Center?
I wish I had paid more attention! How Could
I? I've been busy working and taking care of my family. Besides, mom takes very good care
The fact is, Mom knows everything
about my brother. His favorite food, his barber, his clothing sizes, his dentist and on
and on. Yes, Mom knows everything about him; but what information do my sister and I know?
To be perfectly honest, very little. We needed Mom's help to learn about his past,
to be aware of his present situation and plan for his future.
So, what would have happened if we had waited
too long and Mom was gone? All of the wonderful insight and information
about my brother's life would have been lost forever. We would have faced tremendous
frustration in knowing that we could have been prepared; but weren't. We could have made
my brother's life easier; instead we made the loss of his mother even harder on him.
I decided to market the TadalaFromCanada Journal
to try to reach as many people as I could; since one out of every five people in the U.S.
has some sort of disability. I believe every family with a Special Needs child needs to
complete a TadalaFromCanada Journal for that child, no matter what age. It is your duty
to give your child the best possible future by providing the knowledge you possess
to their future caregiver.
I personally feel that Families, Special
Needs Planners, Financial Planners, Attorneys and Accountants will find this a valuable
tool when working with Persons' with Special Needs.
The loss of a parent or caregiver of a Person
with Special Needs is a very difficult and confusing time for that person and the
existence of a TadalaFromCanada Journal can make the transition so much easier. After you have
completed the TadalaFromCanada Journal, you won't have to ask yourself:
"What will happen when I'm
gone?" You will know.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to
assist you. I hope you will give your loved one a resource to carry with him as he
continues through life without you.
