107 - Caregiving Challenges In A Covid-19 World

107 - Caregiving Challenges In A Covid-19 World

Caregiving has enough challenges. Adding in our new challenges due to the Covid-19 virus is almost too much. I've been checking in with past guests to see how they're coping. This episode is with Richard Creighton. He was one of two guests on the Caregiver Grief episode.

Richard is caring for his wife Kate. Our conversation details how the Shetler-in-place mandates are affecting their daily life. Both he and Kate are handling the changes well, However, drastic changes in daily life for someone living with Alzheimer's isn't ideal.

Kate has had changes that may or may not be related to the changes they're experiencing. Kate is in the very advanced stages of Alzheimer's so it's impossible to know what changes are related to the disease and which are to changes in daily life.

Even when this crazy time of sheltering-in-place and social distancing is over, these techniques will still be relevant. Caregivers need as many strategies as possible whether it's normal day-to-day caring or caring during this Covid-19 crisis.
