Finding the People Who Care

The following is a list that may help people who are ill find the people for their unique caregiver group. If you go through the list with them, you will find that there are many who care. People you never heard of. People you never expected. People who feel just like you do. They want to help but don’t know how. Even if there are items on the list that do not apply to your friend, it will surely spark some additional ideas.

Encourage both men and women, young and old, close friends and casual acquaintances, people who have been caregivers and people who haven’t, people who want to do a lot, people who can do only a little. The more different backgrounds and abilities you have in the group, the more you’ll be able to help. There are enough jobs in every caregiver group so that every man, woman, teen and child can find a suitable job.
