This was a story on NPR yesterday which can now be heard, or read, on their website. It could have been written about me. I took early retirement at 60% pension in order to be home with my husband who has PD. This story addresses the lost wages, benefits, and hardships of caregiving. It was rather nice to hear our efforts and sacrifices being acknowledged! Here is the link: http://www.npr.org/2012/05/01/151472617/discovering-the-true-cost-of-at-home-caregiving

That's really interesting! It's a message that needs to get out there.

I like the idea of caregiver credits toward Social Security.
