My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Bennington Project Independence Inc, Bennington, VT, USA
BPI has a caregivers' group for those of us caring for seriously ill and dying family members. It meets once a month.
It was my life line while my husband and I dealt with his emphysema . The group shared and laughed and cared and considered. The leader was our facilitator, letting us all talk, knowing about resources and how to navigate the system to help us give the care we wanted to give. I would walk into a meeting despairing and come away with courage and understanding.
Today, 3 years after my husband's death, I can go back to the group and share. If I see members around town we stop for meaningful conversation, supporting each other. The group also helped me process what was happening so that I could be useful to others .
