I'm involved in "home caring" for an elderly relative.  We have a very good support system in place, but I'm curious if there are any web sites or blogs that could be helpful.

Hi Anna,

http://groups.msn.com/caringforelderlyfamilymembers.com

This is a great support group!

I am Chris, I also take care of my mother and fatherinlaw -- my husband and I do -- in our home.   Going on 5 years now in our home.    It has become harder and more complicated with my husband laid up for colon surgeries and I have now stepped aside as the provider so there is another woman coming in to  help and this week my fatherinlaw was assessed (today) for Hospice care.   

Good luck and hopefully you'll like the group - it's pretty good I am a member and I like it.

~Chris~

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the link,  but I couldn't get it open..... I got  "hmmm, We can't find that Page..."

oh man -- I wonder why it does that......   I'm pretty bad at doing links.

I know it's an MSN group called CaringforElderlyFamilyMembers -- I don't know if that will help.

Chris:

Could you review this one and let me know basic subject matter.  Is there a suggested cure for the malady?  "Buried in Treasures"
