Education and support for Carers via internet:
thecaregivernetwork.ca/event/part-1-loved-one-caregiver/

This link is to a page where carers can sign up for an upcoming webinar. However, there are other links listed on the page- to websites, blogs, and other helpful resources.

I cared for my mother-in-law part-time for about 7 years, and full-time for 3+ years. It was both a blessing and a burden. I learned so much about what to do, and what NOT to do. She has been in a nursing home for 2 years now, and I'm still processing my (and my husband's) experiences as carers.

To be born Welsh is not to be born with a silver spoon in your mouth, but with a song in your heart.

Are there Any left with any money? I've tried them all and they either can't or seemingly don't want to help so I'm left to it to cope best I can for myself.
