Why DLW Purple Gloves?
Hello everyone, many times I am asked the question "Why DLW Purple Gloves?" The answer is pretty simple. As many of you may or may not know DLW are my mother's initials. On our home page you will see a picture of her that says "In Memory Of" with her name following. The gloves represent the punch of knocking out stress and the fight to educate on the importance of self-care.
When I was my mother's caregiver, I didn't realize how stressed out I was and I really didn't realize how I had neglected self. See when people would see me I always had a smile on my face; the reality behind that smile is what people on the outside looking in did not see. Many days I sat home with my mother very sad because I couldn't get out and do things that I wanted to do. Many days I would cry and no one would even know. Caring for an incapacitated loved one takes a lot from the caregiver. Caregivers are often overwhelmed, in dyer need of respite, unknowingly stressful. See the caretaker's life essentially becomes the caregiver's life and that's when it all hits the fan.
DLW Purple Gloves is determined to continually educate caregiver's on the importance of self-care and the dangers of stress. Greater things are planned for 2020 and we hope you join us as we strive to ensure that caregiver's across the globe are honored monthly with our Caregiver's Token of Appreciation and our Annual Caregiver's Retreat!
Thank you for your continued support of our 2020 vision as we continue to carry out on our mission.!

Gloria I really love what you're doing! Yes I too have been that caregiver...I felt I was in a world by myself. At that time I needed to hear from someone who was feeling the way I was feeling
