Glad to be on this group. I was the primary caregiver to both my parents; first with my dad who suffered a stroke in December 2005. Then my mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in September 2012. I lost both of them on the same year - first my mom in February 2013 then my dad in July 2013. Was not a good year at all...and til this day - I feel that I haven't really grieved. These past years have all been about survival on my part. Thank you for letting me be a part of this group - I hope I can provide insight to how I did my caregiving, my knowledge of home health care and what I did to help my parents when they were both in hospice.
Hi all, my name is Toni. I took care of my mom and she died Feb, 2017 at age 100. It was a fascinating journey! I currently help taking care of my sister who lives with her youngest daughter. I was recently dx with a neuro-muscular disorder so I am taking care of myself! I Live alone and don't need any assistance right now, but may in the future.
