Welcome to Caregivers Corner, a special spot within this site dedicated to you, the unsung heroes of the senior care continuum. As you know, caring for a parent or other loved ones can be quite draining and very stressful. However, during this trying time, the most important thing to keep in the forefront is to take care of yourself. And, although caring for a loved one can seem like a full time job, it’s imperative that you attempt to strike a balance and not isolate yourself from friends and regular contacts.
Senior Care Network’s forums encourage you to pose questions, share your thoughts and connect with others across the country in total privacy who are facing the same challenges as you… others who truly understand, have been in your shoes and who may have something valuable to share that applies to your personal situation.
Benefits of Joining
Senior Care Network’s online forums are a convenient way way to reach out, learn and feel supported by others going through similar experiences. Sometimes the greatest sources of support aren’t necessarily people you know in your day to day life, as they may have their own fears or insecurities triggered in response to your needs and feelings. Hence, the primary benefit of joining an online community of like minded people with first hand caregiver experiences can prove to be the best source of objective support, inspiration and comfort, reinforcing the fact that you are NOT alone on this journey.
The founders of Senior Care Network are firm believers in the benefits of group synergy, as the sharing of common experiences and new found knowledge can be extremely powerful and limitless. Although there are no easy answers or simple solutions, it is our sincere hope that the topical information and small bursts of inspiration you find here by participating in these forums prove to be helpful to you and lightens your load a bit.
