Lisa Makes The New York Times!

Lisa and her dad. Lisa and her dad.


Lisa, who blogs on Caregiving.com about caring for her dad, shared her story in today's edition of The New York Times. Her story and her photos with her dad appear in the article, "Middle Class Shrinks Further as More Fall Out Instead of Climbing Up."

Lisa shares the struggle to pay the bills after losing her job in 2008 and taking on full-time care for her dad. Lisa and her father make it by on his $1,300 Social Security check.

We helped Lisa in December by sending her $500 through our CareGifters program. It's not a lot but it was enough to make a difference. You can connect with Lisa on her profile page (@lisarae) and read her blog.

On a regular basis, reporters reach out to me looking family caregivers to share their stories. If you'd like me to keep you in mind for future stories, please feel free to send me an email.
