Caregiving is extremely difficult, especially as the years go by and a family member needs more and more caregiving. The New York Times recently ran a story about building a team of family members to help share the burden. It talked about the Village Movement, an effort to link neighbors who are approaching retirement and wanted to help others. It’s a great idea, and can help supplement hours being provided by family caregivers. There are a number of software programs which can help friends, family, neighbors and others track the hours and duties of everyone helping.
