You Are Not Alone: Caregivers Share Their Experiences and Insights

CaregiverGroupLong-term caregiving can be isolating and lonely which is why peer support is so vital to a caregiver’s mental, emotional and physical health. More than a decade ago I searched for other caregivers with whom I could share my journey and discovered that connecting was difficult. This experience led me to write Minding Our Elders: Caregivers Share their Personal Stories. Thankfully, during this past decade, because of technology along with other awareness efforts, caregiver support has exploded with resources and professional help. Still, caregivers long to connect personally with each other and share, on an intimate level, what they’ve learned. The stories below are examples of that sharing spirit. Caregiving will change your life both positively and negatively, but these caregivers make it clear that you don’t have to go through it alone.
