In Six Words, What Does Your Caregiving Placebo Cure?


In Six Words, What Does Your Caregiving Placebo Cure?

During yesterday's Today on Your Caregiving Journey podcast, I spoke about a conference I attended on Saturday. During the conference, a research updated attendees on clinical trials, including one clinical trial which showed a significant improvement among patients who received a placebo rather than a treatment.

I'm fascinated by the power of a placebo.

And, that makes me wonder: If we could take a caregiving placebo, what would we cure? Would we take a placebo to cure our loneliness? To give us hope? To bring us peace?

For this six-word story, let's share what our caregiving placebo cures. Your story could look like this:

  • Placebo gives me peace about future.

  • Placebo removes sleep-stealing money worries.

In our comments section, below, share your six-word story about what a caregiving placebo cures for you.
