Notes for Caregivers #8 - A sweet video for Caregivers

"Sustainable Joy" collage by Lani, textures by FlyPaper

On the Stories for Caregivers Facebook page, I found a wonderful, truth filled animation on finding your way in the adventure of care giving.  Often the caregiver feels quite isolated by the seriousness of the task. Things that used to matter a great deal now seem less important. This short video may just reframe your story, it may give you a new way to view your situation.

The video tells the story of a brave raccoon's journey to caregiving for an orphaned eagle. We learn about the transformative nature of caregiving, its disorientation and its rewards, from the racoon's journey.

Please share with other caregivers. "Connection and support are what keeps caregivers strong."
