A lot of us are care-givers.
Parents of young children are obvious examples of caregivers: responsible for someone who has little to no ability to care for himself.
Pet owners are also caregivers: making sure Fido has his nibblets and walkies and shelter, etc.
Nurses, therapists, counselors, hospice workers ... now we're getting into paid occupations of caring for the sick or injured.
Family Caregiver is a unique role: caring for a family member with chronic illness, disability or injury. We didn't train for this service, and despite our intense love for our carees, it can be confusing at best and traumatic at worst to attend to their emotional, physical and spiritual needs 24/7.
This week, check out my fellow bloggers from Caregiving.com, my digital home for coping with the challenges I face in this season of life. We're a merry band of misfits, venting, asking, sharing, and cheering one another on. Perhaps you have reason to join us - please feel welcome to do so.
