I wanted to let you know that as of Monday, (Sept. 27th), you are lucky to have Elizabeth join you as the new moderator for the Caregiving Community.It has been great working with you and I know I leave you in very good hands.
You can still find me on a few other communities including, Diet, Fitness, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, Breast Cancer, Parkinson's Disease, as well as Pregnancy: 1st Trimester and Pregnancy After Loss communities. Feel free to stop by and say hello!
Please welcome Elizabeth, and Elizabeth if you will, please introduce yourself.
I am honored to join this Caregiving Community which is near and dear to my heart. Please see my profile for my Caregiving story. I was plunged into caregiving mode since pregnant with my daughter six years ago.
Balancing everyday, normal life is difficult, but when caring for a loved one the balance becomes almost impossible. It is important to remember to also take care of yourself and your other relationships. I know from experience this is sometimes the farthest thing from your mind. Together we will lend support, share ideas and network for coping during this time of Caregiving.
