Caring for Caregivers


This is really cool! I’ve been thinking a long time about Second Life as a vehicle for people with autism to connect for a long time since social skills are a real challenge. Well lo and behold, even though this isn’t quite what I had in mind this is still really cool for caregivers (who desperately need attention too) 

Check out this great concept designed exclusively for those who provide care for family members with special needs. Caregiver Village members are able to connect with friends, participate in book clubs with celebrity authors, journal, play mystery games, solve puzzles, and learn valuable information about care giving.

Authors such as Liane Kupferberg Carter, renowned journalist and author of many books including The Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism, and Dr. Cindy Ariel, a clinical psychologist specializing in therapy solutions for individuals with autism and their loved ones, will lead book club discussions on Autism and care giving.

As a caregiver myself I love the idea and wanted to share it with you.
