A Positive Caregiving Moment in Video

Jean
This is a video of my mother-in-law and P. I love this video because it shows what a patient, loving caregiver P was to his mom. My mother-in-law had a teddy bear that she frequently "fed" and gave "sips" of her drinks. When we were smart we would take Teddy away before giving her food or drink.

This was probably a few months before my mother-in-law's death. She wasn't very interested in drinking her protein shake, only giving it to Teddy. P intervened and tried to get her to share. She literally is pushing the straw to Teddy's mouth.

This always makes me smile. I need all the smiles I can get these days. (Background noise is the TV.)
