Here’s a recent roundup of our caregiving friends on Instagram and a summary of who they are and what they do. Thanks for sharing your stories with us everyday through inspiring pictures and quotes! This is our tribute to you.
1 – @kimbrell10 is a full-time caregiver in nursing school who combines her love of animals with pictures of those for whom she cares. Here’s one of our faves featuring Kimbrell’s dog Bobo and one of her carees.
2 – @sdcaregivers is a family caregiver for her elderly father. Even though he’s battling Alzheimer’s, we can’t help but notice this man’s style!
3 – @itsmechelsea is a young caregiver to her grandmother, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Chelsea, we love your inspirational captions that go along with the pictures of you and your grandmother. We agree, making memories matters!
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!
