About This Site

Hello!

Welcome to FamilyCaregivingTips.com! Thank you for stopping by. My name is Maria, Chief Blogger. Like you, I’m a family caregiver. I cared first for my mother who had Alzheimers and now care for my father.

Did I plan on becoming a family caregiver? Absolutely not. Perhaps, you’ve also found yourself in a similar, unexpected situation and don’t know what you’ve signed on for. That same expression you see in the mirror (part confusion, part terror) is what I saw when I began caregiving.

Life happens and we just have to deal with it. Somehow.
