Hello everybody. My name is Natalie and I work for Fleishman-Hillard in Atlanta, Georgia. I wanted to share with the caregiving community the findings from a recent study of more than 900 unpaid caregivers sponsored by Aflac. The study examined the social aspects of caregiving and from the survey, they created a list of the the top 10 things to say to someone who is ill. The list can be found at www.aflac.com and clicking on the article "Finding the Right Words Suring Sensitive Times." I found this really insightful and helpful when talking with people who are ill, as well as those who are faced with daily caregiving.
