Last night, Gwyn (@gwyn) joined me on Your Caregiving Journey. You can listen to our show via the player, below.

In April, we raised money through our CareGifters program to help Gwyn. She's using the money to pay for home care as she explores options, like a reverse mortgage, to pay for her mom's care so she can continue to work her full-time job.

Gwyn spoke about the struggle to pay for help so she can work, the struggle to find good help and the struggle to deal with the stress. I invited her to begin blogging and to join our Caring for Parents group.

Gwyn also shared that she doesn't know anyone who's in a similar situation, which, as you know, can make a caregiving situation that much harder. It's difficult when you can't talk out the worries and stresses to another who understands. Just being able to share honestly about the stresses, without about being judged, can make a huge difference in the day.

In speaking with Gwyn, I'm reminded again about the importance of community--a community that helps as often as it can with solutions and support. Thank you so much for making Caregiving.com that kind of community.
