Created for Caregivers, by Caregivers
In August of 2014, my family had lost all hope. My mother was severely ill after suffering from schizophrenia for over a decade and my father was at his breaking point from the stress and abuse that often comes from being a caregiver. Exhausted, alone and fearing the lives of both my parents, we set out on one last attempt to find my mother help.
This site became a document of that journey.
The medical and legal processes we uncovered. The resources that helped us understand the disease. The wonderful people we met along the way. We wanted to record them here, for any other families out there that may be struggling to help their loved one. From our family to yours, we hope you find the information
useful, and that it may help you find solutions and restore hope for your family as it did for mine.
