      From websites to videos, to books to support groups; there are plenty of ALS-focused resources specifically for caregivers. But not all caregivers feel they need to attend an ALS caregiver support group; and sometimes these groups don’t provide enough help.

      If you don’t attend an ALS caregiver support group, where do you find your support, respite and relief? Do you turn to a club, neighbors, a group of friends or other similar groups? What do you recommend for new caregivers?

      Going to lunch with one or more of my close women friends… we can talk about life or we can just laugh and enjoy a good meal. In order to get out of the house my husband has several male friends who are happy to come and hang out with him for a bit. He feels comfortable with them and they can help with his food and other needs for a couple hours. Sometimes the best thing I do is take a nap (taking my phone with me in case…)

      That is so good Sandi that you have found a good way (all-around!) for your own support. You are maintaining connection with your friends… and your husband gets to enjoy his friend’s time as well.

      This is a simple and good solution that many of our forum caregiving members can consider adopting!
