PAL Caregivers is a unique website designed for both Family and Professional Caregivers
Unlike other websites that focus on one type of caregiving, we believe that a site devoted to both Professional and Family caregivers allows each a chance to see what is important to the other. This leads to better understanding and overall better care for the ones we are charged with helping.
Having been on both sides of the fence so to speak, gives our team a unique look at the problems and challenges facing both family and professional caregivers.
It is our desire to provide helpful information, support and understanding to our members. We will be pulling together in one place information which we believe you will find useful. And welcome your input as we move along.
Here are some of the things to look forward to:
Information and resources for both Professional and Family caregivers.
News relating to caregiving and elder issues.
Forums for caregivers to share ideas and concerns about assisting family and clients.
Regular updates to our blogger pages.
Please join us as we travel this journey together, laughing, crying and sharing along the way. We welcome you as a member of our caregiving family! -k2
