website&app - authentic life stories of elder and dying people could help caregivers receive +


In times of strain and difficulty, when suddenly taking the role of a caregiver for a family member, talking to them can be an unexpectedly hard thing to do. And given the many things you have to take care of, you might not easily find the time, energy or inspiration to figure out how or what to talk to them about, in order to take both of your minds off the illness, from time to time.
I think it is a waste to not make the most of the time left for the person being taken care of and to ignore both their and the caregiver’s emotional, spiritual needs of connection and growth, even in, or especially during a challenging, significant time like this. A website where touching, inspiring, authentic life stories of elder people and dying people could help caregivers find a way to talk to their family member in need and help them reaffirm their life experience and make peace with it. At the same time, the caregiver will be provided with valuable insight and this will create quality time they would both benefit from, restoring the dignity that can be altered during the tough process of care-taking for someone completely dependent. Example of stories and experiences http://mentalfloss.com/article/54286/100-pieces-advice-100-year-olds The website would be organized in categories based on discussion topics, advice from the elder,regrets,professional occupation of the elder,stories about meaningful activities other elderly people and their caregivers engaged in during a time of strain. There would also be an app where you could search a certain topic based on key words. Also, a therapist/coach would be available to chat online and ask for professional support about new perspectives on how to talk to the person you are taking care of to boost their spirit(and yours, as a caregiver).
