Hi everyone... ..I thought I should post something and introduce myself. I am 43, in Canada, and was a caregiver to my elderly mother for 3 years. She had a trach, was on oxygen, and had severe osteoporosis. She passed away this October. I found since then I have this need to help others either going through the caregiver experience, or dealing with loss. A person in this situation goes through so many emotional changes, it is a tiring yet rewarding undertaking...I know I would do it all over again.
And...with the upcoming holidays which can even be more stressful for a caregiver AND the person they care for I would like to hear from any of you who have any suggestions, concerns, or just if you would like to share some favorite memories pertaining to Christmas.
