In case you don’t recognize the newsletter you are now reading and are tempted to close the link or, worse yet, unsubscribe,  look closer.  It’s still the same Caregiver Newsletter that you have come to (hopefully) love and look forward to since the very first issue reached your in-box in 2000.

We have been doing a little bit of sprucing up here that we hope you will like.  The new name will better incorporate all of the aspects of our work. Today’s Caregiver , after all, is the title of our 18-year-old print magazine dedicated to caregivers.  This is also designed to read better (larger font, pictures, brighter colors, etc.) and even have a better flow of content.  And, it is easier to share with friends, loved ones and colleagues (hint-hint).

So, as this email hits your in-box, please don’t worry if you don’t recognize the name or artwork. It’s still lil’ ole’ us – with information, advice, interaction and commentary dedicated to supporting family and professional caregivers. We just had a much overdue facelift. 

Now, for that digital tummy tuck.

Maybe they come from inside, or maybe they are expectations from others, none-the-less, the holiday season can be more burdensome than ...more

Vision Loss Affects Our Ability to Communicate
By Danielle Myers-Rickard

Did you know that by age 70, fewer than 30 percent of elderly people have 20/20 vision?

Normal age-related visual impairments such as macular degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma can impact day-to-day functioning. They can affect our ability to drive, read prescription bottles, safely maneuver an uneven sidewalk, or recognize  ...more


It's Right
By Jo Mason

This thing I do...
I've heard those words;
Haven't you?

Most people hope to avoid
This thing I do.
It's impossible without the Lord.

As well as my husband dear,
Without whose help
My ability would disappear.

This thing I do
Wears and tears on me;
But joy comes too from caring for you.

Some nights become long.
Some days are so hard.
Yet I know it can't be wrong

When your eyes shine bright,
And I see you smile.
I know this thing I do is right.
