My name is Peg Johnson and I live in the Midwest. I have lived a very fortunate life in that I have taken care of several family members as they aged. I learned a lot about the help that people need and can get through various services. Now I would like to pass on the many lessons that I have learned in life. This will be about caregiving, living life in today’s world, making money other than a “regular job”, alternative health methods, etc. Basically, I want to share what I have learned through living my life!
I have learned a lot about what does and doesn’t happen with our current system. I am starting this blog to help others through the maze of information out there. Taking care of others is both rewarding and scary. There are many decisions to make. Several of the things I assumed were not right and had I known this, I would have made other choices. I will post weekly about subjects including legal, financial, medical, veteran’s benefits, what Medicare does and doesn’t cover, etc. I encourage anyone to ask questions. I am NOT an expert but will do my best to find out the information you need. As you can tell, this is something I am very passionate about.
Along with that, I also am very involved in several groups including veterans organizations, caregiving, animal care, essential oils, writing and many others. I do some couponing and feel strongly that going back to the “old way” of doing a lot of things is a good idea. This will give me a broad range of subjects to write about.
We are all growing older. It is not just older people who may need caregivers. Someday we will probably be taking care of someone and/or someone will take care of us. Let’s be prepared as much as possible.
This blog covers subjects that appeal to caregivers of all groups. There are a lot of caregivers who are caring for children, veterans, sibling and spouses.
Please email us if there is anything we can help you with. We want this to be as helpful to as many people as possible.
