A Miracle: Caregiving.com Will Continue (Phew!!)

Denise
flower-108685_640The sun came up today.

I just finalized a deal to be acquired by an exciting health care company focused on creating a new incentive platform for family caregivers.

With this acquisition, we stay together as a community, I have a job (a paycheck!!!) and we all have access to a team working to create new ways to support and help you. Initially, you won't see any changes. We'll keep you posted about any changes that will happen.

The new company enables health plans and medical providers to recognize the importance of the family caregiver in the care management coordination ecosystem. You play such a critical role in pharmaceutical adherence, providing daily activities of living and bringing good cheer to your carees. All of these efforts play a role in keeping your caree as well as possible.

Our goal is to bring the 50 million plus family caregivers into a community of respect, continual learning and mutual support, which lines up perfectly with my goals when I began Caregiving.com.

I will continue to keep you posted on the acquisition and what you can expect from us going forward.

In addition, because I no longer have the worries about how I'm going to pay the bills, we can move back to a free membership. (Members: I just emailed you more details about this.)

Most important, you all made this possible. Your notes of support and encouragement on Monday created this opportunity. Thank you so much for sticking with me and for being such an amazing, caring community.

What's most amazing about this is that you all will be a part of what we hope will be a game changer in the health insurance space. Your involvement now will change how caregiving happens. You can be the difference.

We often talk about family caregivers as disrupters. We now have the the funding, support and tools to truly make lives of family caregivers much, much better.

AWESOME!!!! \r\n\r\nSo glad to get this news.\r\n\r\nI've been thinking about something you said Denise about Caregivers being disrupters. That is certainly true. We can ill afford to take status quo, out of sheer survival we have to inspire and initiate change...\r\n\r\nBut this episode you've just undergone makes me also think that we Caregivers are ALSO the exact opposite of disrupters.\r\n\r\nWe're the fixers, the healers, problem solvers, we're the receivers and workers of miracles.\r\nwe live the unimaginable, the unforeseeable, \r\nwe achieve the improbably, make the impossible look routine.\r\n\r\nIt's not for the faint of heart, this path that we walk. But those of us who find themselves on it, we can expect the unexpected. As can you... \r\n\r\nour Caregiver to the caregiver.

Hallelujah! Prayers answered! There is nothing better than to hear that you, Denise are doing what your mission has been all along! I don't even want to think about a refund (haven't read emails yet) so apply the rest of my membership fee to support anyone here as you see fit! I am hoping you will have your own address and cute place for us to see in the next video chat! There's so much more to say but I just Love how this adventure is continuing for all of us.
