Uniting An Isolated Population: Adrienne Gruberg on Caregiver SOS

Recently, The Caregiver Space’s president and founder, Adrienne Gruberg, had the amazing opportunity to be on the radio show Caregiver SOS with host Ron Aaron.

A funny and heart-warming story– definitely worth the listen.

Hear Adrienne’s story and discover how she turned what she learned as a caregiver into a way to help thousands (and potentially millions!) of caregivers who would be otherwise isolated.

  2. I have been care provider all my adult life.First real job was cna and then caring for my mom and grand daughter.I have been doing private care for her since she was born. I became her 24/7 caregiver in 1988, guardian in 2009. My social life has stopped and feel at time what the heck, getting depressed more as i am now 55 soon to be 56 and my grand daughters turning 23yrs old..Some of my children understand but think at times they haven’t a clue about my life rather lack of one …Dont get me wrong I wouldn’t change caring for my granddaughter for one second. But some time for myself would be nice… miss social life even time out for movie or dinner..Just i guess feeling very isolated theses days.. sorry for my complaining hope someone else here can understand how i feel…

    • There’s no shame in what you’ve expressed– feeling like you want your social life back doesn’t mean you don’t love caring for your granddaughter. It’s so easy to feel isolated when caregiving… Fortunately we can connect with each other online, just like you’ve done 🙂
