They say that it is very healing to write about one’s thoughts and emotions. I agree with this concept. In 2011, I decided that I would create a blog to share the ongoing challenges that our family faced as we managed my Dad’s nursing home care. Those challenges were compounded because my Dad suffered from Alzheimer’s disease.
I was not only interested in venting on my blog. I also thought that by sharing my stories, I could help empower other families who were facing the same issues that we were firsthand.
Although I’m consulting caregivers now, I feel that the blog posts I created can continue to serve an important purpose. I will share those posts on this blog. I will also continue to write about issues that I believe the community of nursing home caregivers can connect with.
I invite you to sign up on this page to receive my future posts via email. Also, I want to remind you that you are not alone on this journey. I look forward to hearing from you!
