Family caregivers too often set aside their own needs while focused on the needs of those under their care. Even worse, as we’ve recently discussed, many family caregivers don’t see themselves as such and thus fail to recognize the need to care for their own needs as well as those of family members.
Our effort to find creative ways to help more family caregivers realize they are filling that role and get the support they need led us to release the “You Might Be a Family Caregiver” podcast feature.
The great feedback we’ve gotten for that podcast feature, which is modeled after one of Jeff Foxworthy”s signature routines, convinced us to take the concept one step further – to the development of a
feature film short YouTube video. Yes, that’s right, you get to see us in addition to hear our words (it’s even captioned, in case you want to see our words too)!
Please take a look at the video and let us know what additional items we might have listed. If we get enough, there just might be a sequel!
We hope you’ll share the video with those you know who are family caregivers and may not realize it so they understand their needs are important too.
Looking forward to your feedback!
