"We Did It" or the Best Caregiving Ending


"We Did It" or the Best Caregiving Ending

Last summer, a family caregiver sent me a question to answer in my Ask Denise column. The question, quite simply, was: Does caregiving ever end well?

Today, on Table Talk on Your Caregiving Journey, Holly, who cared for her husband, shared how well caregiving can end. During our podcast, Holly shared that after Dave died, she sat on her couch and said, "We did it." She celebrated the peaceful, loving transition that was as beautiful for her as the birth of her children.

If you only ever have a chance to listen to one of our podcasts, this is the podcast to listen to. And, if you'd like, you can listen to all our podcasts with Holly, who cared for her husband for eight years, beginning in the fall of 2010.
