Tell Us: Do You Feel Abandoned?

Denise
house-791139_640We've talked a lot about the loneliness and isolation of caregiving.

Chris (@oscargal) shared an article on our Facebook fan page today with the headline, "Unpaid caregivers say they are abandoned by family and friends."

The article included this quote from a daughter who cares for her father:

"Once one person steps up to the plate and takes care, well then everybody else kind of disappears," she said. "'Oh don't worry because so and so's got it covered.' Sad but true."

I wonder what you think. Do you feel abandoned? Please share your experiences and thoughts in our comments section, below.
