I've been the primary caregiver for my father since 2018, but most of the responsibilities were minimal supervision, medication reminders, medical appointment transportation, and financial support. About a month ago during a procedure to address his initial disability, he had a "massive" (neurosurgeon's words) hemorrhagic stroke. He now has increased support needs and I've realized I need additional support for myself as I navigate this change in caregiving responsibilities.
A bit about me outside of those responsibilities: I'm pursing my second master's degree and am currently a full time student receiving grant funding. I love knitting, reading, writing, and doing yoga. I volunteer with a few local organizations including a parrot rescue. I spend my free time cuddling with my dog and parrot, and I live near close extended family.
I look forward to getting to know folks in this community and to offering and receiving support and advice!
