I was wondering if anyone knows of a web site for finding local pen pals. I'm in Oklahoma (OKC metro area) and I'd love to find someone who is single and about my age (44) who is also a caregiver like myself. I really just want to have someone local to talk to, who has a positive attitude and would possibly, eventually like to do things from time to time as a way of getting away from it all, if only for a short time. My time is very limited but as we all know being a caregiver get's very lonely at times.

I wonder if the AARP website might be of some help. Or looking for Meet Up group in you area.

Roger, all your County Agency on Aging to see what events are planned for your area where you can meet other caregivers.

Is there a weekly local newspaper? Sometimes such papers have a list of Meetings and they list the medical meeting support groups.

Roger, I'm wondering if you have Craigs list in OKC? It might be a place to " advertise". Also, contact the geriatrics and neuro departments of any university hospitals in your area, as well as schools of social work.

I have looked some with little results, but to be honest I need to do more searching.
