Starting this podcast was all about sharing my knowledge with other caregivers. That was the plan with Francey, to have a conversation where we shared resources. As many of my recorded conversations go, we ended up talking about our shared journey.
That’s okay, because I feel that hearing other caregiver stories, them sharing their knowledge is helpful to all of us. Knowing we’re not alone, that we have similar struggles can be truly beneficial. I like to think of episodes like this one as a way to get support without having to leave your home. We all know what a struggle that can be.
Francey bounced all over the country for 25 years chasing her career in airport operations and management, She moved to Sarasota, Florida in 2015 to take care of her mother. Not long after this big change, she started her blog as a way of sharing her knowledge with others.
Becoming a full time caregiver came with a steep learning curve. Having never been married or raising any kids, Francey never had to care for anyone but herself! Her blog is about her challenges and also the joys and rewards. It’s a way for her to keep her Mom forever alive in cyberspace. It’s a place to vent, and , hopefully, to lend support, experience and knowledge to others who are or will soon be a memory loss caregiver.
