Managing day-to-day life is hard for many people, but even those who seem to have a pretty good handle on things can be thrown for a loop when a family member is ill. If it hasn’t happened to you, you’ve probably talked to clients, friends, or acquaintances who’ve gone through the experience.

When things are tough, we need all the help we can get, so I invited my readers to share blog posts they’ve written about organizing medical documents, medication, visits, or some other aspect of life with illness in the family.

As you read the posts listed below, please connect with the bloggers on social media, leave comments, and share your favorites with your own network. Please use the hashtag #POBC in your social media posts.

I recommend...

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.
