A photo, they say, is worth a thousand words.

On the first day of every month, we share a photo of our caregiving day. Since we started our First Photo Project in September of 2014, members have posted photos of equipment, of carees, of a masked family caregiver at dialysis, of the morning shave, of a caree folding laundry.

In the next few days, take a photo during your day. Your photo can show what’s mundane or what’s meaningful about your day. The project is about capturing caregiving as a moment in time. A combination of moments will tell a story. In April, Cathy (@cathyj) posted this photo of her mom with her granddaughter.

Once you take your photo, share it and a description, if you’d like, in the First Photo Project group. (Note: You must be a member of Caregiving.com to post in our groups.)

I look forward to seeing your stories.

About Denise

I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched Caregiving.com in 1996 to help and support them. Through my blog, I share words of comfort and offer coping strategies and tips. I also write opinion pieces about recent research, community programs and media coverage of caregiving issues. I've written several caregiving books, including "The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey," "Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers" and "After Caregiving Ends, A Guide to Beginning Again." You can purchase my books and schedule a coaching call with me in our store.
