    I truly appreciated the video released by Home Instead about Care-Giving Journey.Thank you so much for the outstanding narration by Mary Alexander.God bless. My mom is on her 80's now.she's having multiple illnesses like:High blood pressure,late onset Diabetes(NIDDM) controlled,Kidney problem,anemia,chronic Arthritis.She being taken care of by my two younger sisters(on their early 40's),single(never had in a relationships). My Dad is on his late 70's,asthmatic but still able and dependent by himself.They're getting financial support from my aunt (younger sis of my mom and a bread winner), who is now on her late 70's and about to retire from being a domestic helper in japan. On this regard, I would like to request any reading or video material to help my two sisters cope up with their own feelings towards care giving. I hope for your kind and generous support.Thank you very much. God bless. Sincerely, Jose Audrey Clarito
