Caregiver Profiles

 

These profiles are meant to serve as a way to show the many faces of caregiving—to pass along wisdom, experience and hope to help others in similar circumstances. Caregiver Profiles will be collected on our blog.

Please provide brief answers to the questions below to our Media Director, Cori, at cori@thecaregiverspace.org.

Along with your answers, please send a photo and a link to your blog or Facebook page (optional).
