This Week's Carenote - 10/25/11
My husband has brain cancer and I've been caring for him full-time for six months, putting my career as an Internet publisher (which I thought would give me home-based flexibility) largely on hold.   Now I wonder what I'll be able to do as caring for him declines as he gets better (or...).  What is available to 60-somethings who have a gap in their information careers?  I'm learning a lot about caregiving and the health system... but what caregiver isn't? :-)
 
Any ideas?

Get back to that Internet career you started. It is never to late. And now you have even more information to share. I am 76 and have started a new business around taking good care of yourself while you care for others. I am also writing a book.

My husband also has brain cancer (glioblastoma) and I try to live one day at a time but I can't help think about down the road as with this disease I don't see a good prognosis. Luckily, I am retired and still am able to do things on my own, outside our home. That is my sanity! Talk about a total lifestyle change. Good luck!
