In this second post of a two-part series, I introduce the ‘darker side’ of meaning; searching for meaning and creating meaning as a carer/caregiver and include some exercises and activities for you to complete.
In this first post of a two-part series, I will start with an introduction ‘meaning’ and its relationship to ‘purpose’. I will then explore some ‘sources’ of meaning as carers with examples of what those might look and feel like.

In this post I talk about multi-generational caring. I will start by explaining the different types of sandwich carers, then discuss the challenges and the importance of planning and provide some useful resources.
In this post, I will be talking about how loneliness can affect anyone, even when you are not alone but as a carer you can feel even more isolated and lonely. I then provide some suggestions for how to reduce a sense of loneliness.
