Welcome, Deb! Thanks so much for being here with us!


Hi Lily--I've checked for an account with your email address and we don't have an account for you. You'll want to create your account here: Once you create your account, you'll be able to log in. So grateful that you'll join us!


Hi Lily -- We are open to listening to whatever is happening during your day. Please join any of our three scheduled chats in our Caregiving chatroom. We'd love to connect with you.


Hi--I would simply offer free rent in exchange for being to help in case of a crisis. We have a program in the Chicago area that offers shared housing with seniors and young adults. The young adults live in the senior's home at a reduced rent in exchange for helping the senior. Your arrangement sounds similar. I think free rent in exchange for being available is more than fair.


Hi Michelle, my husband was diagnosed over a year ago with the same, FTD. There's a great chat meeting on Mondays. I usually can't get there because of another obligation, but when I do, it's very supportive. It's so helpful to know we're not alone. Best wishes to you.... Welcome to all the other new people, too.
