Father Tim is back in the blogging business

This time, it is with a decided twist: a blog on reflections to care givers.

I tip my hat to him and his wife for attempting to shed light on a social issue that is more common than people might think, but to which society prefers to pretend does not exist other than in nursing homes and does very little in terms of social services or structure to mediate or alleviate.

Sadly, with aging Baby Boomers and the rising cost of healthcare and insurance, there will be a lot more care giving by family members in the next few decades than at any point since the early 20th century or, perhaps, even farther back than that.
