The Faces of Caregiving

Every day, about 65 million Americans help a parent, partner, spouse, sibling, child, friend or grandparent suffering from a chronic illness or disability. They may help in their home or in a family member’s home or in a nursing home. Our Faces of Caregiving introduces you the family caregivers all around you. Family caregivers are your neighbors, co-workers, friends. They stand in front of you in the grocery store and sit next to you in the pew. And, with their hands, they do God’s work.

The Faces of Caregiving say it all.

I’ve begun to pin up photos of family caregivers here. I’d love to include yours. Just send me (denise@caregiving.com) a link to a photo. No link? You can email me the photo and I’ll take it from there. You can send me a photo of just you or of you and your caree. Please also include description about yourself and your caregiving situation, which I’ll also include.

Be sure to stop by The Faces of Caregiving regularly to see who we add.

Denise,
Your bulletin board is very powerful. Thank you for beginning a place to share such photos – each representing something that we can all relate to and find comfort in.

Denise, What a fantastic idea! I haven’t joined Pinterest yet but it seems to be all the rage. Love the wall you’ve created. I hope it’s just as you envisioned 14 years ago! Your dedication to caregivers always warms my heart.
