The reason I decided to come to Ivillage to get some help is because I have gotten or recieved help or advice from this website before and it was very helpful. I am or i'm writing on here again asking for help because I just moved to Arizona and I'm new to a new town or city and I'm trying to make new friends but I dont know how or where to start. With the type of job I have I cant really make friends through my job or through work because I'm a caregiver. is there any suggestions or tips that someone can offer me? thanks

sure; what are your hobbies and interests? you can see if the local community college in your area has any classes that you'd like. you could also check out the churches/synagogues in your area or join a gym, and what about a support group for caregivers? (not that you need job support right now, but you might in the future, and you'd meet others who could definitely relate.)

welcome to the board, and i hope others will chime in with their suggestions :)
