Re: Is there somewhere a child of a caregiver can talk?
There are certainly some posts here by family members who are not the primary caregivers. This category is often made up of (a) adult children who want to support one parent caring for the other parent, and (b) those who want to support their spouse who has a parent caring for the other parent [so the mother-in-law or father-in-law has LBD].
The only way I can think of to find such posts is to do a search for those in category (b) by searching for the word "in-law" in past posts.
I think there are more posts of those in these two categories on the LBDcaregivers Yahoo!Group. In particular, I believe "planomom" has a mother with LBD, and the daughter tries to support the father.
I was my father's primary caregiver but I lived in a different state than he did. One publication I found useful early on was this one:
So Far Away: Twenty Questions for Long-Distance Caregivers
National Institute on Aginghttp://www.nia.nih.gov/HealthInformatio ... aregiving/
(download for free online)
I'm sure at least one of the 20 questions in that publication addresses how an adult child can support the caregiver parent.
