  1. Interesting.  They need to do a piece on those caring for children and spouses.  The other 24/7 caregivers.  Thanks for sharing. (It doesn't apply to me, either)

  2. Thank you for posting. I agree with Gina. ;o)

  4. I will be tuned in to watch it!!! Congratulations for bringing Caregiving to the public, and for making a difference. This may be a new beginning for thousands of people. Lead on, Patrick! Bea

  5. BTW, keep us posted as to the airing of it. bea

  6. I may have to go watch it somewhere.  Let me know air time.


  7. .......guess this would apply to my mother and I,  but sharing it would only make me feel like I am not quite doing the job I should.  

  8. ............but if they did one that was your situation you should go in for it Patrick.  You have so much to offer. Hope your headaches are behaving. Rache
