Welcome to Arbor Rose at Jerome Home's Caregiver Blog, open to all types of caregivers. This is a safe place to discuss all things involved in caregiving: share stories, tips and tricks, stress relievers, and so much more. Each week we would like to develop a new thread with different caregiver issues.
For our first week, we just wanted to see if anyone out there is a caregiver. By definition, a caregiver is an individual who:
- Takes care of someone who has a chronic illness or disease.
- Manages medications or talks to doctors and nurses on someone's behalf.
- Helps bathe or dress someone who is frail or disabled.
- Takes care of household chores, meals, or bills for someone who cannot do these things alone.
