This website and  our Facebook page - the Upside of Downs Umbrella - is for you, by you, and with you - right at your fingertips - as you navigate your caregiving journey. YOU are integral to this group -- your experience, your knowledge, your advice, your questions, in fact, all things that have found their way into your caregiving life -- they all are gifts to the rest of us here!  You can see the gifts we've received so far organized into the Resource Lists displayed above. So please, take a moment or two, and share YOUR gifts!  Add to the lists! To do this, post to the Facebook page here (be sure to request membership first) and then post any helpful links you've found or articles, or write of your experiences and/or expertise as a caregiver, post photos, videos and no matter how big or small, let us hear of your hard-won triumphs!  You'll lift and inspire all of us here in the Upside of Downs community of caregivers!
