This Week's Carenote - 3/18/14


I found your site and am grateful to start seeing articles. I have the flip side of aging parent caregiving. I am the parent caregiving a 27-year-old daughter with TBI (traumatic brain injury).

I am 54. Her accident was 14 years ago, on the eve of her 13th birthday. I am starting to look at what will happen when I am gone. She is in a program during the day and is independent in many ways. However, she could never live on her own, drive a car or be in a sexual relationship. So, my goals are to make sure she has all she needs for when I am no longer around. I am also seeking professional help to assist in my emotional journey with these decisions.

All the best to you.

Maryland resident
