Getting to Know You Contest Begins Feb. 27

sweetness-598350_640The best resource for you as you care for a family member or friend is another family caregiver.

I think it's critical that you connect with another in a similar situation. To that end, we recently moved from using our groups to using our Forums to making communicating and connecting easier.

In particular, we have a section called "Connect With Others in a Similar Situation" that includes an area for you to introduce yourself.

To help us get used to this area, we're having a "Getting to Know You Contest" for three days beginning Friday, February 27 and ending Sunday, March 1. At any time during that three-day period, stop by our "Connect with Others in a Similar Situation" and introduce yourself. If you've already introduced yourself, simply introduce yourself to another who's shared an introduction.

Each day, I choose one winner who's shared in our "Connect with Others in a Similar Situation" section to receive a $25 gift card. For a chance to win, simply post an introduction or introduce yourself to another.

Our contest is open to both members of and visitors. If you are a member, be sure to include a link to your author page ( or profile page (

For a chance to win, tell us about yourself in as many of the sections as appropriate for you:

Caring for an Aunt or Uncle

Caring for Children

Caring for a Friend

Caring for Grandparents

Caring for a Parent

Caring for a Parent and Kids

Caring for Siblings

Caring for a Spouse

Caring for a Spouse and Kids

Caring from a Distance

Working and Caregiving

Feel free to post and share in our Forums when you have a question, a solution, a worry or a success.

We'll do a similar contest two more times for other areas in our Forum. On March 6, we'll begin a three-day "Share a Review" contest and on March 13 we'll begin a "Tell Us About Your Day" contest.
