    Interesting article. Thanks for sharing, The main responsibility of caregivers is basically to serve as a companion to their care recipients, supervising and assisting them in their day-to-day activities, sometimes around the clock. Because you will be spending most of your time with your care recipient as a caregiver, you can have the chance to bond and share stories with each other.

    Thanks,

      Hi Eleanor,

      Thank you for weighing in. You make some clear and important points about caregivers who are paid for their time, effort and care.

      I am the mother and grandmother to two individuals who live with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. They need my support, sometimes intensely and other times not so much. MY caregiver role includes being a loving mom and grandma, advocating, attending important meetings, staying informed, arranging and liaising with paid caregivers, creating schedules and distributing schedules, giving reminders, and monitoring the effectiveness of all support.

      Thank you, Teeya. As we live longer and longer more of us will become part-time or full-time caregivers. So glad these tips may help!
