25 Best Alzheimer’s Blogs of 2013
Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease can be a frightening and challenging task. Caregivers, family members, and medical staff address the emotions and questions around Alzheimer’s in the growing domain of blogs.
Here we have compiled the best of the best Alzheimer’s and dementia blogs from people who are truly “in the trenches.” These writers provide answers, empathy, encouragement, companionship, and an occasional hint of entertainment.
Caregiving With Purpose is #3, and here’s what Healthlines.com said…
Caregiving With Purpose
Dr. Ina Gilmore has been on both the medical and the personal sides of eldercare. She puts her knowledge to work for you with tips and information on thriving despite—or perhaps because of—your role as a caregiver.
Caregiving With Purpose helps call readers’ attention to the potential for growth and the importance of self-care when caregiving. Gilmore also addresses some of the tangential but very important aspects of taking care of a loved one or patient with Alzheimer’s, such as nutrition and hospice care.
Thank you Healthlines.
In their description they captured the essence of what I’ve been working on conveying to caregivers. The potential for growth and importance of self-care while learning about giving care. And most of all… “She puts her knowledge to work for you with tips and information on thriving despite—or perhaps because of—your role as a caregiver.”
Thriving while doing what your heart yearns – giving care!
Now there’s a membership designed just for caregivers. Where you can find answers and discuss challenges. Check out the membership for 7 days for only a penny!
From my heart to yours… Laugh Well, Love Well and Live Well!
