 Happy Thanks for Giving Day

I think there has never been a more aptly named holiday for family caregivers than Thanks Giving. Oh, I know that there are traditional theories behind the holiday, the Pilgrims, turkey, stuffing and all that. But I am taken with the fact that the name of the holiday details everything I think about caregivers: Thanks for Giving so much for your loved ones, friends and community.

Thanks for Giving your time, energy, heart and dedication for those who are in need.

Thanks for Giving a face to all that is right with this world.

Thanks for Giving so very much so often...continued

Take care

Gary Barg

Sharing Wisdom


From Diane in western New York
My husband has ALS and cannot move his legs in bed. Since it's very uncomfortable for him to stay in one position all the time, he likes me to bend his legs at the knee with his feet flat on the mattress. A piece of rug pad under his feet keeps them from slipping on the sheet.
