Here you can share your story and read other family caregiver stories.
A sense of isolation, a belief that "I am the only one thinking and feeling this way" is a very common idea among family caregivers. However, the sad reality is millions of people are thrust into the role of family caregivers and many think and feel exactly the same way that you do.
The problem is many family caregivers are hesitant to speak up or share their innermost feelings for fear of being misunderstood and/or admonished. However, speaking up is one of the best ways to reduce feelings of isolation and to relieve some of the emotions you may have inside. It is also a great way to help bring about the changes, which are needed to make the lives of caregiving families much easier.
The CAN Story Project offers family caregivers a platform to both share their stories and to read other family caregiving experiences. It's easy to do and here's how it works:
Submit a story of your own. Note that you must log in first.
Read stories from other family caregivers.
