I wanted to share this video with the community because a few things really resonated:

  • the importance of self-care for the caregiver
  • the importance of building a support network
  • the lack of preparation in becoming a caregiver
  • the usefulness of caregiver magazines for Patricia

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

How might we highlight the importance of self-care to caregivers and ensure that they prioritise this in their life?
