    Thank you in advance. I'm 76 and M is nearly 83 and not well. I look forward to "good words".

    I am the wife/caregiver of a 67 year old stroke survivor. I am experiencing "senior" issues, such as falling. My husband needs constant care as he is prone to seizures. We are paying, out of pocket for a 40 hour caregiver. I am on duty the rest of the time. I have fallen over a dozen times during the last month due to dropping blood pressure. Age isn't the only criteria for caregiver stress...the health care community needs to concentrate on; many aging caregivers are dealing with many neurological diseases in their survivors that need to be included in this site.
