Some things to keep in mind

  • This is a public space. Pretty much anyone can see what you post, even if they haven't registered on the forum.
  • Avoid sharing personally-identifiable health information. For instance, if you're talking about experiences you've had as a family caregiver, don't use real names or provide details that might allow readers to identify the person you were looking after. For this reason, we recommend not using your full name as your user name when you register.
  • Be respectful of other people’s opinions and ideas. It’s okay to disagree and have different opinions, but present your case tactfully. This is a community.
  • Please don't use the forum for commercial purposes. Mentioning relevant local services is okay, but all threads that are simply an ad will be removed.
  • We have a few other rules we'd like everyone to follow. Be sure to read our Terms of Use when you register.
  • If you see posts that aren't in keeping with our Terms of Use, please report them so that we can keep this a safe public space. (To report a post, click on the Report button beside it. You'll need to be logged in.)
