Saw this in the Hamilton (ON) Mountain News:

… Toll-free line offers help for those who take care of family members…

“A unique hotline and website are now available to help family caregivers cope and find the resources they need to take care of their loved ones. Anyone in need of caregiving support can call the toll-free Canada Cares Caregiver support line for advice and direction at 1-855-619-5021, and access a list of local home and residential care services at http://www.canadacares.org. Canada Cares is a not-for-profit program that involves a virtual community, grassroots events and caregiver coaching program.”

For over twenty years, I have parented four grandchildren with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: a disorder caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol. Please read of our family struggles and challenges at http://www.challengedhope.com. My two ebook memoirs available on Amazon titled: Two Decades Of Diapers, and, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome: The Teen Years, describe the struggles my grandchildren and I experienced during their youth and teenage years. I have also written fiction, including a six-book English seaside series, titled, Under the Shanklin sky. I am now embarking on a new adventure creating children's picture books, designed specifically with kids with FAS in mind. The two main characters of the book are Strawberry & Cracker, twins with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. The first titled The School Day focuses on the special supports the twins need at school for a successful outcome. The book is due out in the fall of 2017, to be followed by more in the series, all focused on the daily challenges faced by children with FAS.
