Fellow blogger Dorian Martin' s mother died of Alzheimer' s disease. She has continued to write for OurAlzheimers.com. Below is a post that I felt many of you would fine interesting about re-entering the professional world after life as a caregiver :
" Taking care of my mother after she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s meant I had to step off the career path for several years and move into a less stressful job that took care of my basic financial needs, but allowed me the flexibility to be there for Mom. After Mom died, I began to think about how to step back more fully into the workforce. Fortunately, I already was working part-time for a consulting company and was able to increase the hours I worked in order to begin to ramp up my career."
