I have been enjoying the episodes so far and would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to Amy who shared the episode with me for all that information about her book. My daughter is a writer and she always talk about writing my story. We talk a lot about my life growing up as a child but I must encourage her to listen to this broadcast and that might push her to start the story if she haven’t already. Thank you Michelle for this wonderful forum.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful and enlightening information today. The advice and information shared today by both Enid W. and Amy H., was very much appreciated. As one who’s in the process of writing my own personal caregiving story, I found Amy’s book information to be very encouraging and inspiring to say the least. I’d recommend this ‘Call For Caring’ podcast to everyone I know, especially those who are currently in the arena of caring for a loved one, as well as those who may most likely find themselves in some sort of caregiving capacity in the near or unforeseen future. This is good information to have readily available, for one may never know when it’ll be needed, either for their loved ones or for someone else. Great resource information and advice, thanks again for making this ‘Call For Caring’ podcast and topic of information available to the viewing public both near and far. I’m currently viewing this podcast from the State of Oregon… *And again I say – “Thank You!” Until the next time, take care!
