It is incredible to me that I have met only two of these amazing, caring individuals in person. Yet, I feel I know them all.
We are located in both hemispheres of our planet and our common thread has been an association with memory loss. Our experiences, our heartaches, our loneliness and our joyful moments have created a bond among caregivers and authors that we never could have envisioned.
I am grateful to these Guest Authors for their willingness to share, most times expressing personal life moments, so other caregivers will not be afraid or anxious. I am humbled as I learn different perspectives from each one. Thank you all. 🥰
If you have a story you wish to share, one that fits the theme of this website—related to caregivers and caregiving for those with memory loss—please send info on contact page for consideration. Thank you.
