Online Resource for Caregivers
Individuals who provide care for ailing loved ones can feel overwhelmed and isolated from others. Caregiver Village, a new online resource for caregivers, provides a social networking site dedicated solely to caregivers and the issues they face daily.
The website allows caregivers to share their experiences with others, create online journals, receive information on care giving, and play games that are both engaging and informative. Additionally, members can participate in “book clubs”-- expert led discussions aimed at providing support to the caregivers themselves.
