The concept of a tree of life has been used in many cultures throughout time. It points to the interconnection of all life as well as the seasons and cycles of living and dying. In the background of this website you will notice the faint image of the tree of life. It serves as a reminder to all caregivers of the often overlooked beauty of their experience.
Dementia is a debilitating disease that has long reaching implications for both the person with the illness and the caregiver. Caregivers often suffer physically, mentally, emotionally and spirituality. But many caregivers also report that they are changed and transformed by their caregiving experience in many ways that did not expect. Caregivers talk about “positive transformations” that stay with them even long after the caregiving has ended.
At Care2Caregivers, we believe in the strength of each caregiver. We believe that each caregiver has deep roots that help support and nourish them in their caregiving journey. Just as the tree can endure the storm even if it sustains damage or the loss of limbs, new life can still emerge as the cycles of life unfold. Caregivers grow through all the seasons of their caregiving.
Your Care2Caregivers staff is here to support you as you go through the seasons of caregiving and grow in ways you never expected.
