Sharing Wisdom

From Maureen in Delaware
 
Paper copies of your medical records make good sense. Easy to share, copy, scan, etc. Some of us computer savvy folks think that using an application makes the best sense. Think again!

Caregivers know the care a loved one really needs best. So love and value the caregiver who spends more time with the needful person and keep your lines of communication open and free.


The best ideas and solutions for taking care of  your  loved one often come from other caregivers. Please post your ideas and insights and we will share them with your fellow caregivers.
