In the past, we’ve defined “caregiving” through our six-word stories.

Fort this one, I’d love for you to describe it. Write a story about how caregiving feels to you and looks to us. You also can write a six-word story about your responsibilities, pressure and worries.

Feel free to write as many six-word stories as you’d like that describes what your caregiving responsibilities mean to you.

About Denise

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." You can purchase my books and schedule a coaching call with me in our store.

Frightening, necessary, challenging, exhausting, isolated, and overwhelming
