I’m privileged to be a caregiving expert for Caring.com, the leading online destination for family caregivers seeking information, support, in-home care, and senior living options for aging parents, spouses and other loved ones. Caring.com‘s mission is to equip others. They equip family caregivers to make better decisions, save time and money, and feel less alone — and less stressed — as they face the many challenges of caregiving.
As part of their mission, Caring.com evaluates products and services that are helpful to caregivers. Recently, Caring.com reviewed the Dignity Project for Caregivers. Caregiving for an aging loved one is a different experience for each person. Whether caring in the early or late stages of life, it’s always great to be reminded that, as a caregiver, you are not alone. Many Caring.com members are able to gain encouragement through constant contact with other caregivers via online support groups. Another option is the Dignity CD, a compilation of songs and stories to help caregivers feel less alone. Here, find out what the panel of family caregivers thought about Dignity.
What Is the Dignity Project?
Dignity is a compilation of music and spoken word selections directed at caregivers of adults. It can be purchased as a CD or listened to as an MP3 through the CD’s website. The songs and stories cover many dimensions of caregiving, with the perspectives of generations of family caregivers, paid caregivers, and others.As a caregiver for more than a dozen years, as well as a caregiving expert, I encourage you to visit Caring.com and check out their wide-ranging, vital resources for caregivers, as well as their review of the Dignity Project for Caregivers.
