. . . Where Caregivers Encourage Each Other

Page (3) of 3

It is an honour to share the wisdom from Guest Authors who contribute to help illuminate the world of caregiving for other caregivers through their thoughts and experiences. ๐Ÿ’• I love sharing stories others wish to tell!


What experiences could you, as a caregiver, share?? In what ways can you contribute to the caregiver toolbox?

  • How did you feel?
  • What surprised you?
  • How did you find solutions?
  • Where did you get help?
  • How did you learn?
  • What do you wish you had known?
  • What is the most helpful advice you could share with someone else?

When you are ready, write your Caregiver Tip to share so others can learn from your caregiving life. Then, contact me!

This blog type size is intentionally larger. Hopefully, it is easy reading. Readers tell me they like the larger print in my books and so I hope this larger type size makes for easier reading online, too! ๐Ÿ˜Š Let me know!

Caregiver to caregiver connections

Do not wait. You can be the one who responds to a caregiver’s plea, the one who reaches out with encouragement to a caregiver who needs your friendship. You’ll know the one.

It feels good to discover others have been angry or sad, felt similar guilt, made the same mistakes and wondered about the same unanswered questions. Let them know it is OK!

DO YOU UNDERSTAND the caregiver’s life?
Do you yearn to feel encouragement and support?
Those who do, will resonate with the shared experiences, both here and in the two books.

Read the BACKSTORY that gives context, fills in some of the gaps, shares events and information not told in the two books, that, together, took four years to write, overlapping somewhere in the middle when I worked on both.
