Are you caring for an aging loved one? Bewildered?
My friend and fellow knitter, Julie, has been the primary care-giver for 15 (!) family members and friends over the past 20 years.
She created a plain language, down-to-earth website aimed at sharing loads of practical tips for the care-giver. She takes the mystery out of this journey, showing ways to navigate the system and access the system. With humor and comical original artwork, Julie shows how to ask a question and get an answer, how to communicate with siblings, how to meet with the professionals, and much more.
There's something for everyone at www.artfulcare.com. I hope you will take time to visit the site and send feedback.
[NOTE: People come into our lives for a reason~~~~When Julie and I met, years ago, we "clicked" and am so thankful for her awesome website. I had been worried and dreading how and what to do when the time comes with my mom. This is something no one wants to think about but Julie makes it possible.]
I am my mother's daughter. She taught me how to knit, ride a horse, love and enjoy the unique characteristics of all living things, shoot a .22 rifle, drive a car, cook, be kind to people (if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all), sing, and country dance.
Back to knitting...I dream, think, read and talk knitting.
I knit every day.
