Who we’re taking care of

February 1, 2018

According to Allison Powell, the members of Community Wisdom share something in common in that they are all caregivers to at least one person, if not many. Some members have adult loved ones on the autism spectrum, many of whom are non-verbal and require constant supervision. Others care for aging parents with physical challenges, as well as Alzheimer’s and dementia. And still others are caring for veterans with PTSD and a variety of physical disabilities. While being a caregiver is never easy, it is good to know that there are others experiencing similar challenges to our own.

Key Takeaways:

  • One caregiver cares for a 180 pound autidtic, teenage son, who functions at a two year old level.
  • It’s not uncommon for caregivers to neglect their own doctor’s visits, as they spend most of their time ensuring their loved one makes their appointments.
  • While many parents struggle with special needs children, others are taking care of their own aging parents.

“Our community members are taking care of many different people with many different conditions and ability levels.”
