taking care, giving care

Welcome to the Taking Care Flash Blog, a different way to view caregiving. With a slight twist on the standard 140-character tweets, I honor the caregiver's need for a quick fix -- every post will be 140 words or less.

I’ll share my life and caregiving tips through the lens of a fifty-something only child with no children of my own, last living blood relative and long-distance caregiver to my divorced parents.

On a daily basis, I’m learning to navigate through the emotional rollercoaster of caregiving -- patience, humor, sadness, positivity, anger, success and failure.

Join me on the journey!
