Show Us The Faces of Caregiving

I snapped this photo of Pegi and her husband (and caree) after we met for lunch during a trip to Florida in 2013.

Every day, about 65 million Americans help a parent, partner, spouse, sibling, child, friend or grandparent suffering from a chronic illness or disability. They may help in their home or in a family member’s home or in a nursing home. Our Faces of Caregiving introduces you the family caregivers all around you. Family caregivers are your neighbors, co-workers, friends. They stand in front of you in the grocery store and sit next to you in the pew. And, with their hands, they do God’s work.

The Faces of Caregiving say it all.

In February 2012, I organized The Faces of Caregiving Pinterest board, adding photos of you and your caree as you sent them to me. I loved doing this but found the process clunky. You had to email me a photo, I had to add it to Pinterest.

This weekend, I realized we can easily create The Faces of Caregiving on Caregiving.com. Just join The Faces of Caregiving group and add a photo of you and your caree from any moment during your caregiving experience. Our Faces of Caregiving is open to both current and former family caregivers. Be sure to include a story about the photo that you share. Once you add your photos to our group, I can also add them to our Pinterest board. (I snapped the photo, right, of Pegi (@worriedwife) and her husband (and caree) after we met for lunch during a trip to Florida in 2013.)

Join The Faces of Caregiving group and show us what caregiving looks like.
