This is so great Julie :)

I so appreciate this as I have personal experience as a caregiver. So much grief and loss of connection.
Lisa White
44:02
yes, so true. We as OT practitioners offer so much value in this area… listening. Hearing what’s important to them. Validating their feelings.
Lisa White

so glad you’re bringing up caregiver’s role changing after loved one passes. They still have needs

could you share the references page? Working on a capstone student paper about this topic!

Type your questions in a private message to Allison Dwyer
Cass Stevenson

how can we support caregivers right now in this current situation?
Lisa Delfino

My favorite thing that you said was that we need to listen and not “give a response/solution”. I feel that I am so often in the “problem solving mode” but can see how just listening would be beneficial.
Linda Crawford
01:05:49
That's a sobering statistic
Linda Crawford
01:06:14
Validation of a person's experience is probably what people need the most

We have also seen limitations on in person visits in the inpatient settings. Phone calls and video chats with family members can be quite challenging when working with a patient who has dementia, bt sometimes that the best option we have.
Linda Crawford
01:12:09
I can imagine that there are similar challenges to family members with people who are now in the hospital due to visiting restrictions. Ths is new for everyone and I think your comment is indiciative of how this can be affecting more people now
Lisa White
01:13:25
I was wondering how you kept supporting the caregiver. pro bono?
Linda Crawford
01:13:48
Coaching might be an option?
Linda Crawford
01:14:10
But obviously not everyone can afford that
Lisa White
01:14:40
I love the idea that OT can continue supporting the caregiver after a loved one passes. Just wondered how you did that and bill, etc.
