Many caregivers would write in saying they are alone and cannot attend a support group in person. Could we create a forum for them?
(PRWEB) October 09, 2012
eCareDiary.com, the award-winning website for family caregivers, launches a new Caregiver Message Board to engage caregivers in dialogue and a supportive forum.
The Caregiver Message Board enables caregivers to post questions and discussion topics for feedback from others who might have been through similar experiences.
In addition, a “Share Your Story” page gives caregivers the opportunity to share their experience as well as read the stories of others to find support and encouragement.
eCareDiary created the Caregiver Message Board in response to feedback from its website community. According to Co-founder Susan Baida, “Many caregivers would write in saying they are alone and cannot attend a support group in person. Could we create a forum for them?” The Caregiver Message Board will serve as a much needed online forum for caregivers to share experiences, tips and much-needed encouragement. It also serves to help ease caregivers from the sense of isolation and stress that often occurs.
Margery Pabst, eCareDiary's caregiving expert and co-author of "Enrich Your Caregiving Journey," offers story-telling tips on video on the “Share Your Story” page. Margery has incorporated story telling in a therapeutic manner as a way to share lessons, validate emotions and build inspiration for caregivers through the years.
