It can tough to juggle a job, caregiving responsibilities, caring for grandchildren or helping adult children in addition to caring for a loved one so my next five posts will each offer web resources where family caregivers can find information, support and resources.
Let's start with the "user friendly" and "content laden" website of AARP.
It's tough to find a website with as much variety and content as is offered through AARP. Informative articles, archived webinars, and forums on topics ranging from insurance, longterm care options, home modifications, relationship issues as well as the challenges and joys of caregiving - you'll find it all at the AARP site.
One of the "hidden" benefits of the AARP site : The forums carry lively and "real life" advice from other caregivers who aren't shy expressing their opinions or relating their experiences.
