There are many caregivers among us. I have been on both sides. After heart surgery in 2017, my husband cared for me as my body re-learned how to pump blood through a new aortic valve. I was very tired and often needed extra help. My husband felt stressed, figuring out the right thing to do. We have talked a lot about it. Now I realized I am among many others who care for an elderly parent, a child, a partner, or clients or patients.
Pre-launch, seven of us Voices 5 co-authors got together to talk about our chapters in the new Voices of the 21st Century: Conscious Caring Women Who Make a Difference.
Talking about my chapter, “Memory and Acceptance: Lessons From My Mother,” I spoke about care for the caregiver (2-min video).
