The other day I shared with my Dad how frustrating it can be to post supportive caregiving tips on social media only to get little to no views or response, yet when someone posts a puppy video there are thousands of likes and shares. My Dad fully understands the challenges associated with being a caregiver as he cared for his wife Helen for several years before she passed. Because of his experience I was sure he could understand my plight in trying to share useful information to support family caregiver. I was thunderstruck by his response. My Dad very simply, yet profoundly responded, “Life is hard, especially when you are a caregiver, sometimes people just want to see a puppy”.
Therefore, in the light of this revelation, today I will not be sharing any caregiver insights or tips, just some pictures and videos of my puppies. Enjoy.
