Caregivers - This One is For You!

Do you care for a loved one who has macular degeneration or suffers from some other eye condition? Do you struggle with how much you should do or not do for him/her?

Do you get tired of everyone asking how the macular degeneration patient is doing but no one asks how you are doing?

Are you experiencing changes in your roles and responsibilities as your family member's vision changes?

The world of caregiving for someone with macular degeneration brings new challenges and requires continual adjustments. Who should know this better than Chris Roberts.

Her husband Dan Roberts the director of and author of The First Year: Age-Related Macular Degeneration: An Essential Guide for the Newly Diagnosed was first diagnosed almost 20 years ago in 1994.

I had the privilege of meeting Dan and Chris this summer at the Visions Conference in Minneapolis. A constant companion and support, Chris shares with us her feelings of what this journey has been like for her and provides tips for helping others who share the same role as a caregiver:
