4 – @carepossible is a fellow nonprofit foundation that helps give greater access to those in need of addiction and mental healthcare but cannot afford it. Thanks for supporting our troops and providing us with words to live by.

5 – @hospicetalk connects those seeking information about hospice care with their online support network. We’ve shared more than one daily inspiring quote from this handle. Thanks for sharing with us!

 

6 – @lindseybiggs was a caregiver to her mother and grandmother, both of whom passed away from Alzheimer’s. She continues to inspire through her beautiful pictures of dance and her endless pursuit to raise awareness.

7 – @1girl2boys is another one of our favorite family caregivers. She’s a mother of – you guessed it – one girl and two boys, who also cares for her 100-year-old father AKA “the light bandit” (since he rolls around turning off the house lights). Thanks for serving up eldercare with grace and humor, Donna!

8 – @shen_digg is a professional caregiver who adds her artistic side to the way she cares for her patients. Seeing her dance and paint with her carees is an absolute joy. Keep the videos coming, Shentel.

9 – @oakswflyer is a family caregiver to his mom with Alzheimer’s. We love the things he crochets for her and takes pictures of her using.

10 – @ladyandababy chronicles the life of herself and her autistic son on Instagram. She highlights the many facets of their lives, always capturing her boy’s beautiful smile.
