Your Other Job as Caregiver

Many of us have taken multi-tasking to a whole new level. Our day job is to build our careers with all the hard work and stress that can bring. Our other job may be serving as caregiver to ageing parents or other loved ones. It is not surprising if you find this second position daunting. Even my colleague John Mills, a health care expert, struggled when he was a caregiver for his father, who suffered from Parkinson's Disease. John learned from the experience and decided to share that knowledge with others

With his life and business partner, Susan Baida, John founded eCare Diary, an interactive website designed to help individuals and families seeking and providing long-term care. The site offers comprehensive information, tools and resources to help navigate the complex long-term care system. A stand-out feature is Care Diary, a set of online tools to facilitate coordination of care and sharing of information among family members and other caregivers. The site is free.

Please take advantage of all the help that's out there as you strive to balance your many responsibilities. eCare Diary is a great resource.
