I Forgive You Forget A Caregiver's Resource

Hope. Healing. Triumph.

Welcome. My name is Vic.  I face the same demanding, unpredictable day as you because my Mother has Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia. I have been her caregiver for a little over 7 years now …and counting.

Those of us who care for a loved one with dementia, understand – truly understand – what it takes to do this job, and the toll it takes on us as well.  The statistic is accurate; 67% of caregivers die before their loved ones due to stress and exhaustion; i.e., a stroke, heart attack, or suicide.  Within the first 2 years of my caring for Mom, I confronted this statistic. I Forgive, You Forget (IFYF) is dementia specific.  We are a safe place to quickly and easily find suggestions and resolutions.  As a community, we will share our common experience to dilemmas we face every minute of our day to help find answers.   As important, the personal growth I’ve experienced from being in this difficult circumstance has been a silver lining I wasn’t expecting.  Yet I’ve gained insight and wisdom that support every aspect of my life, not just caregiving.  All of these ideas are interwoven and linked within our site through our Blog, Q & A’s in Dear Vic, Resources, and the tools and ideas offered in “Brick by Brick.”  Each can help us move from self-sacrifice to self-development.  We are here to inspire each other, evolve, and grow. I Forgive, You Forget is dedicated to helping us stand back up, dust ourselves off and give our days a fighting chance of hope, healing and meaning.
