Take Heart: Support for Caregivers

I attended an important and exciting meeting in SL today. It was an informal gathering of caregivers who came together under the guidance of Carolina Keats (avatar name)on Health Info Island. By the end of the meeting, we had decided to formalize the group, and even came up with a name and mission. The group is Take Heart: Support for Caregivers, and the mission is to provide an environment where caregivers can help one another with resources and support. It is a group for caregivers, by caregivers.

I contacted Carolina in RL and we will be meeting soon to discuss possibilities for colloboration. I am truly enthused by the dimension and opportunities this might bring to the Live-Ability House project.
