Thank you for checking out our Care-FULL Conversation Resources. The videos are to provide information to help benefit the caregiver and care receiver.
The Last One Standing
Description: Who will care for me when I am the last one standing? What if I outlive my family of origin, my life partner, my children, and my closest friends? How will I plan for that possibility? What resources are available? And, is this a motivation to invest myself in relationships throughout life? As relational beings, we need companions throughout the journey of life.
Who Will Care for Me?
Description: A concern noted on the report was a lack of family support throughout the caregiving journey. Often, individuals within the LGBT community are estranged from their family of origin. So, family is defined differently…..trusted friends and colleagues. Hence, we have to be more intentional about creating family and confirming that there is a commitment to care for each other.
