This Week's Carenote - 09/27/11
Are there any resources out there for disabled caregivers?
 
I am a woman who has been disabled for about a decade and I am taking care of my 83-year-old father (after having taken care of both him and my mother).  My energy is very limited, which makes caring for his increasing dementia very difficult. 
 
Just knowing others are others there who are like me would help greatly, but to have information on how to maximize our abilities, our tasks, etc., would be phenomenal. 
 
I think what I miss most is someone to talk to; someone who can carry on a conversation.  Being virtually housebound is very isolating!
 
Thank you for any guidance you can offer
