Adam commented on The New Normal - Survival Kit For Caregiving Heroes

Love this idea, and the example gifts would be helpful in forging connections to the care-giving community and accompanying support and ideas. It's also essential to someone's 'survival' in this new role/identity to find new ways to connect with the loved one they may be caring for as well. Would you consider including simple tactile activities/toys/exercises to help the caregiver connect with their loved one with dementia? The feeling of losing the person you've known for years adds an incredible amount of stress, and can be brought on by losing those tried and true ways a caregiver may have used to interact and communicate with their loved one - any help to forge new connections would help make surviving each day a bit easier. Happy to share more.
