This Week's Carenote - 2/17/10

I have cared for my mother 24/7 for eight years now. Although she has Alzheimer's/dementia, she is still totally aware of every one and every thing around her. She has numerous health problems but remains feisty, funny, and loving. I need to earn money from home to keep her here and not in a nursing home. Has anyone found something doable? Thanks.

Have you thought about Avon? Right after I started my husband was hit by a car and we spent the next 8 months in and out of surgery and the hospital. I still was not only able to do my business but I was very successful. I am a now a Honor Society member and Advanced Unit leader! It is only $20 to get started, there is no inventory required. There are no minimum orders due, you can take a break anytime you need, and much more. I would love to share more about this amazing business with you.I promise no strings attached. Call or email me at 423-895-2545 or myboxofnotes@msn.com or check out my website www.youravon.com/pauladukes to find out more! Thanks and God bless you. Paula Dukes

Try and list your skills, hobby's or interests and you might get some ideas. IF I could sew, I'd consider being a seamstress, I see some demand and it def could be done from home. Ebay and CraigsList are good for selling. It would help to know your skills, etc. and perhaps you can even try and get some new ones. Sorry, nothing specific, but I'm kind of in the same boat.I am going to try selling. Best to you!

I'm in the same boat, I've been taking care of my mother for almost 8 years now ... with the same issues your mother has. Unfortunately I don't have any ideas either, so if you find anything that works, please pass it on. Thanks.
