Today's Caregiver™ Friendly Award
2014 Nominations

What do personal emergency response systems (PERS), bathroom fall prevention products, incontinence supplies, home safety products, and home monitoring systems all have in common? (And, as of this year, long-term care facilities?)

From Alex:  I work as a caregiver for my 92-year-old great aunt. How can I keep my cool when she snaps at me? I literally take a cry break in the bathroom every couple days because it's hard to handle sometimes. She forgets she was so harsh to me after only 10 minutes, but I remember it for days. I know I shouldn't take it personally, but it's even harder being related to her. Do you have any advice?
