Caregiving and Independent Living
« on: July 18, 2010, 03:25:20 AM »

Living independently is about facing the challenges one meets in life and meeting them on your own terms.  Sometimes, doing so requires some help.

Whether its simply listening as we vent frustrations, or actively addressing our issues for us, the people who help us meet life's challenges are caregivers.  This is their place.

We don't expect confidential information to be shared here. In fact, I'd strongly discourage it and am likely to delete it if you do.   But if you need a place to sound off about general issues, shoot the breeze to vent your frustrations or share helpful hints and tips on care giving and related issues feel free...

There are so few sites for this sort of thing, and it blows me away.  Caregiving is the number one most depressed job field in American (look it up), and yet caregivers don't seem to have any voice.  When my wife was witness to a client falling off of his wheelchair life, it deeply effected her.  Thank God I was there to listen, or she would've probably had to just hold it all in.  Caregivers really need somewhere to talk about facebook statuses...
