If you check online there are support groups for non family/paid Alz caregivers with lots of info and support... you say she's your client but also that you have POA so Admin can look at your situation.

Hi Steve - you refer to the person you are caring for as your “client”, which indicates that you may have stumbled upon this site while looking for help for a professional caring relationship. This site is an intentionally designed community to provide support for family caregivers as well as those who are living in the early stages of dementia. While we are thankful for the work that professional caregivers do, we ask that you allow us the space to keep this community for the unique journey that we are on. I have asked the admin to review your membership in our group. Thanks for the work you are doing with your client!
Not a problem thanks for understanding enjoy your day stay safe
Hi Steve- I certainly am not trying to hurt you or shame you. And I apologize if I made assumptions about the relationship you have with your friend based on the language in your post. We are a protective group of people and there are so few places that we can gather without the presence of professionals. As you know, taking care of someone you love has a lot of different dimensions and we try to keep this as a safe space for us, you included, so it does not become a place for professionals to get advice for patients or clients. I hope you find this place as helpful as I have and that you and Patricia are getting all the support you need in these crazy times. Again, I apologize for the assumptions I made and I hope you will forgive me. Sending hugs and support to you and Patricia!❤️
