Giving to Amy

As often as we can, we raise money to help a family caregiver in need through our CareGifters program.

Today, we’re raising money to help Amy, who will be our fourth family caregiver we’ve helped. She’s been caring for her parents since 2002. Prior to caring for her parents, she lived with and cared for her grandmother. Amy is 31-years-old. You can read her blog here.

Our goal is to raise $500 to help Amy, who writes, “I would love to be able to pay off most of the small medical bills that my parents have and also be able to get a check-up for myself so that I can be my best to care for them. I am doing all I can but it seems to keep getting harder to do. So any help would help. Thank you for this opportunity to get my story out there.” You can help with your donation of $5. (If you want to give more, we’ll take more.)

I’ve asked Amy to share her three top challenges; they are (in her words):

1. Money for medical bills.
2. Money for my health care becasue my parents need 24-hour care. I am unable to work.
3. Facing eviction.

After Amy receives her $500, she’ll share how she used it and its impact on CareGifters.org and Your Caregiving Journey talk show.

You can donate below. CareGifters is operated through The Center for Family Caregivers, a charitable organization. We use PayPal to process your donation. (Please note: The Center for Family Caregivers does not currently have tax exempt status with the IRS so donations are not tax deductible.)

Thanks so much to all who help!!!

I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched CareGiving.com in 1996 to help and support them. Through my blog, I share words of comfort and offer coping strategies and tips. I also write opinion pieces about recent research, community programs and media coverage of caregiving issues. I've written several caregiving books, including "The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey," "Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers" and "After Caregiving Ends, A Guide to Beginning Again."
