Welcome to the home of the Caregiver Spotlight.  I am so glad you have joined me and are interested in my walk as a caregiver.  I want to provide you with the insight I have gained by taking on this role at an early age.  This blog page is not to just share my experience with you, but rather to connect with you, by  providing steps in navigating the system, tips on talking with healthcare providers, REALISTIC ways to take care of yourself and some humor to lighten your day, even for just a moment in time. I also want to share stories of caregivers around this country and the amazing caregiver organizations that often go unnoticed and unrecognized.

I promise you are not alone and will identify with a lot of the stories, thoughts and ideas. Lets travel together as a community in supporting one another in our roles as caregivers.

“Loving ourselves through the process of owning our story is the bravest thing we’ll ever do.” – Brene Brown

It has … Continue reading The Caregiver Community: Healing or Hurting You?
