A Caregiving.com Story from Jan

(Editor’s Note: We’ve asked current and former members and visitors to share their stories of how Caregiving.com has helped. Today, we share a story from Jan (@janshriver), who cares for her mom.)

Jan_MomThe night I felt so absolutely isolated and stir crazy, I thought, "There has got to be some chat-thing out there for people like me." And I googled caregivers.com (that sounded reasonable) and this website came up.

I am daily overwhelmed by the amount and kind of information, inspiration and support. I have barely scratched the surface of it in 3 months. Surely something offered here can help a person who is searching and crying out.

For me, the writing part has been the greatest opportunity. I have always loved writing. I can see where this is chronicling my journey with my mother, as well as giving me something to think about besides the frustration of daily challenges and events; how can I see them differently, and then express it in words. Thanks, everyone for your support.
