Our book, OK Now What? A Caregiver’s Guide to What Matters (Head to Wind Publishing, 2014) prompted this blog. Sue Collins, RN and I (Nancy Taylor Robson) got so much great feedback, and hard so many stories while traveling around for presentations and book signings that we decided to create a space where others could share their stories of caregiving – the heartbreak and joy, the exhaustion and surprising gifts or caregiving, the solutions they have found to their specific obstacles and challenges — with a wider audience.
We also want to offer information, resources and ideas to other caregivers. Despite so often feeling isolated and overwhelmed, what matters is that we live consciously, mindfully, and with as much joy as we can glean from every day. Come, share your frustrations and triumphs, your pleasures and sorrows. We’re all in this together, and none of us is getting out of here alive!
