One of my favorite things about this blog is that it creates a community of support for caregivers with vastly various backgrounds. I love that my mom is sharing her story. I may be biased, but I think it’s a story that needs to be shared with the world. Because my mom is brave enough to share her story of caregiving, she has opened the door for so many others to share their stories – stories and knowledge from various backgrounds that the world needs to hear. I’ve been a guest author 5 times, and I found the opportunity to write and share my stories was a therapeutic and rewarding experience. I look forward to learning more from my mom and other guest authors through this blog.
Thank you Katie! I’m grateful for your support and encouragement. I’ve learned so much from all the guest authors and reading your point of view on our life was very enlightening. I whole heartily agree, writing is both therapeutic and rewarding! I appreciate your comment.
Thank you, Barbara, for helping me to find my voice in telling my story of being the caregiver to my parents in their final years. I couldn’t have done it without you. Writing of my experiences and then being willing to publish my story was therapeutic as well as educational. I hope others will come forward to share their stories. Each one has blessed my life in some way and I look forward to a continuing opportunity to learn from others in various circumstances as we unite as caregivers.
Well said Dianne! I appreciate your article and all you do for Uniting Caregivers. Each story has blessed my life by broadening my understanding of the different challenges we each face. I appreciate your comment.
