Caregivers Awareness Month

November is Caregivers Awareness Month! Share your journey of being a caregiver with a community that gets it.

  1. I am a caregiver for my mom who has Alzheimer’s. It's one of the most important roles I'll ever have, and it gives me great honor to serve this woman who taught me so much about life. From dealing with her confusion in the early stages all the way up until these final stages when she is bedridden and non-verbal -- it has not been an easy journey but one filled with many valuable lessons on how best to handle things when life gives you lemons.
    I hope these words can help guide others going through similar struggles because there really isn't anything more encouraging than knowing you are resilient and can do hard things.
