12:09:33     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Community : Share The Care is used to create a TEAM that can provide emotional, social and practical support for someone they know, including their caregiver and family as well as the individual team members throughout the caregiving journey no matter the challenge:https://sharethecare.org/

12:11:35     From  gloria Gaddy : Self-Care is a must, you must remind yourself it's up to you to say NO !  Gloria Gaddy , Bowie Senior Center

12:15:54     From  Leslie McTyre : is there any way to get men to stop being such selfish and uncaring beings? (Steve is obviously excluded!)

12:24:57     From  Margi Helsel-Arnold : This is wonderful—I would think Villages could adopt this?    I also had an old HS friend who died from Breast Cancer and she did not let her husband tell five of us who were close to her and we always felt we would have given her support -this was only six years ago-Margi Arnold ALCA provider

12:28:06     From  gloria Gaddy : Let's remember the one who needs the support has to surrender to your team and want to accept the care.  So many times the support group gives and the person will not accept, professional care is needed as well as someone who cares because of the heart  .  This is a progressive  situation !  Thanks so much, Gloria
