Next: Glitter, Bounce, Frank

We’re heading into our second week of our Community Caregiving Journal. Create a blog post by next Wednesday, December 12, and write about these three words:

Frank (you can write about the Franks in your life or just about being frank or any other definition of frank (like a hot dog) you’d like)

You can write about each separately in three separate posts. You can write about all three in one post. You can write sentences using all three words.

In essence, you can write about the words in the way that feels right for you.

Here’s how our Community Caregiving Journal work: Every Wednesday, I’ll post three new words for you to write about. Don’t worry about keeping up every week if that seems too difficult. Just write about any of the words whenever you can.

Any member of can contribute. When you write posts for our Community Caregiving Journey, select “Community Caregiving Journal” as the category. Need help posting to the site? Just send me a private message through the site or send me an email. Not a member of Just join here. Worried about the privacy of your family and your caree? Simply create your account with a user name that describes you but isn’t your real name (like ejourneys).

Our journal complements your blog posts about your day. Continue to post updates about your situation, including the challenges and successes, in your own blog. (Want to share your caregiving days by starting a blog? Just send me a private message through the site or send me an email.)

(Note: We’ll continue the conversation about each week’s three words in our Three-Word Journaling class, available through our CarePASS. To purchase yours, just go here.)

About Denise

I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched 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." You can purchase my books and schedule a coaching call with me in our store.

    Hi–I don’t have a set system. I just get quiet, look around and listen. Whatever comes to me is what we write about. :)
