This Week's Carenote - 7/21/10
Hello,

I live in CA and I have been a caregiver to both of my parents since 1983. My father passed in 1988, and recently  my mom has been showing signs of Alzheimer's and or dementia. She also has heart disease, 3 types of arthritis (including fibromyalgia) and diabetes.  I work full time, and take care of her. I am seeing lately that she needs my assistance more.

I was thinking about looking into taking some time off work, but would love to find something I can work from home where I can earn a decent income and still be here to watch after her. Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you
