Raising Awareness of the Role & Impact of Caregiving

During the engagement phase of the project, Connecting the Dots for Caregivers had the pleasure of meeting Pat, who is a caregiver to her husband George.

In our January newsletter, Pat shared what it was like to be a caregiver. She shared feelings that she had never expressed before. By doing so, she tells us a weight has been lifted. She knows now that her family truly understands what's involved in being a caregiver and appreciates the extra support they provide. 

According to Pat, recognizing herself in this role, as well as being recognized by others has made a world of difference.

"I feel lighter... someone listened to me."

You can listen to Pat's original interview here.

As partners in change family caregivers will say...

"I am heard, understood, valued, respected, engaged, included, informed, educated, supported and a partner in my loved on'es care plan and as a partner in change."
