Resources for Caregiving Parents Recommended by Caregiving Parents
Resources for caregiving parents are more plentiful than they’ve ever been before. The challenge for today’s special needs families is to find them.
That’s why Sharing Love Abundantly in Special Needs Families: The 5 Love Languages for Parents Raising Children with Disabilities has a resource list tucked in the end of the book. It’s not just any resource list. It’s a list curated by caregiving parents like you.
I asked families this final question when they were interviewed before Sharing Love Abundantly: was written: What resources do you recommend to caregiving families?
Every response was recorded and sorted into 3 categories–print, online, and organizations.
The resources range from devotionals to parenting advice, from author websites to household tip websites, and from respite organizations to inclusive dance troupes.
After you finish the last chapter of Sharing Love Abundantly, keep flipping pages until you find the resource list. You won’t want to miss this amazing list of resources for caregiving parents!
