New Websites to Look At.

Sunday's paper had its Parade Magazine; in it was a short list of websites that would be helpful to a variety of people with a variety of medical situations. The article was in the 'Stay Healthy' section. There were 2 that I visited quickly to get an overview of and they looked good.


One was MyAutismTeam.com for parents of children with autism. The flagship social network site of MyHealthTeams, MyAutismTeam .com helps users connect with similar parents and add them to their "team" (much like following someone on Twitter). Members can also search among more than 30,000 autism specialists and autism-friendly businesses in their local community—all recommended by other members.

The second one was Caring.com for adults caring for aging parents, spouses, or other loved ones with debilitating diseases. In 2006, when co-founder Andy Cohen was caring for his mom (who had lung cancer), he couldn't find information online on how to hire a nurse, navigate Medicare, or answer any of the hundreds of other questions he had. Now, nearly 2 million people visit his website each month for support and local senior care referrals.

Take a look to see if they can provide any additional resources to help with your current situation.

4 Signs of Caregiving Stress Overload

ElderCarelink email posts 4 signs that should not be overlooked by you, the caregiver, or a close family member or friend. They report that even though the immediate caregiver may not be helping in direct care, the mind is never far from the needs of the older person, thinking about meals, falling, medications. Take the opinion of a family member or friend if they are telling you that you are stressed. Four signs: you skip your own physicals; you isolate yourself from others; you eat and/or drink too much for good health; you are short tempered with the elder, your spouse or your children. If any or all of these sound familiar, take a break no matter how short in order to recharge. For more information on caregiver stress see ElderCarelink

A Caregiver's Poem

I was looking through a 'Caregiver's Blog: Senior Care Support' and came across a poem that was shared by a writer, Dana, from the blog. The poem was written by Becky Netherland and Dana's grandmother shared it with her. I thought it was great and there is not much to say about it - just read!!! Enjoy!!

Grandma’s Pearls of Wisdom:
(picture from Caregivers Blog)

I’ve traveled paths you’ve yet to walk
Learned lessons old and new
And now this wisdom of my life
I’m blessed to share with you
Let kindness spread like sunshine
Embrace those who are sad
Respect their dignity, give them joy
And leave them feeling glad
Forgive those who might hurt you
And though you have your pride
Listen closely to their viewpoint
Try to see the other side
Walk softly when you’re angry
Try not to take offense
Invoke your sense of humor
Laughter’s power is immense!
Express what you are feeling
Your beliefs you should uphold
Don’t shy away from what is right
Be courageous and be bold
Keep hope right in your pocket
It will guide you day by day
Take it out when it is needed
When it’s near, you’ll find a way
Remember friends and family
Of which you are a precious part
Love deeply and love truly
Give freely from your heart
The world is far from perfect
There’s conflict and there’s strife
But you still can make a difference
By how you live your life
And so I’m very blessed to know
The wonders you will do
Because you are my granddaughter
And I believe in you.
