    Hi Carolyn, Just heard you speaking on 97.5 Sacramento. I want to thank you for your work on behalf of family caregivers! Families are so strange, you think you know your siblings until the caregiving comes up. I am the caregiver for my 88 year old father & 85 year old mother who has Alzheimer’s. I get so angry with my self-centered brother & sister-in-law that I was planning on driving 2 hours to their home to confront them. I think I’ll go through your website instead and avoid drama.
    Again I thank you!

    • Dear Susan,
      Thank you so much for reaching out and sharing. Abundant Blessings to you for caring for BOTH of your parents… Regarding your siblings, it is alway BEST practice to be prepared by having ALL of the necessary documents legally filed in both State and Federal (For Veterans) courts systems. This will help protect both you and your parents during and after your caregiving JOURNEY. May God Bless you for your Love, Respect and Dedication. Sincerely, Carolyn
