Suddenly, regardless of preparation, anyone may find themselves in the responsible role of a caregiver. The new role often follows the shock of a critical accident or illness involving someone one loves. Although their initial care may begin with professional support in a hospital or care facility, the day comes when one’s loved one is released into one’s own care.

The dismissal process typically consists of a brief meeting with the social services representative to review medications, special instructions, follow up appointments, and then closes with, "Do you have any questions?" It's a daunting situation. One of the most important responsibilities of a caregiver is to accurately capture and communicate health information for the care recipient.

The Silver Lining Journal: for Caregivers, is specifically designed to help caregivers record daily health observations used to clearly communicate progress with health care providers. The journal is also designed to help caregivers focus on their own well being as they record daily silver lining moments that provided them with personal joy. Over time, the journal becomes a time ordered reflection of each uniquely personal care giving story.
