Caregiving for my aging parents over the last several years has taken a really toll on me, my husband and my children. Vital Family Caregivers and Vital Options International had given me the tools and knowledge to cope with the everyday stress of caregiving. Tins S.
I have reached a point in my caregiving journey where I hit the wall. My social life was gone, I lost my job and depression set in. Thank you Vital Options International for all your support, understanding and just being there for me. Sarah W.
I never thought my retirement would consist of caring for my wife 24/7 as she battled Alzheimer's Disease. Vital Options International was there to support me every step of the way. I cant thank you enough for all your support, compassion and understanding. My ability to connect to other men going through the same think I am is a godsend. Robert L.
To say that I was burned out, filled with stress and anxiety and could not seem to function from my role as a caregiver was an understatement. Vital Options International gave me renewed hope with the information, education and support to become a better caregiver.
