If you are alone in caring for a family member or friend. If you are feeling unappreciated. Please remember that the Imperfect Caregiver is working for change by speaking out. I am very proud to be a caregiver advocate and today I have two wonderful opportunities to speak for caregivers.
This morning I was filmed and interviewed by Voice of America. In May I was a participant in the Human Book Project held at Gum Spring Library in Aldi, VA. My purpose in being there was to speak to “readers” who checked out Human Books to learn about their unique life experiences. I spoke about what is closest to my heart, being a caregiver for a seriously ill family member. Today another “reader” interviewed me and the short video will appear on the Voice of America website in about three weeks. I will post the link once the video goes live. You will also hear from another Human Book, Maimah Karmo speak about her very different story of strength and service to others. I am proud have met Maimah through the Human Book project and now have her as my friend.
This evening I will be speaking to people at the Purcellville Baptist Church in Purcellville VA. about caregiving and how they can help caregivers in our community.
We need more advocates and since I have not yet heard from Dr. Phil in response to my Dr. Phil Challenge, I am very interested in speaking with many more church and civic groups.
Last month I spoke with members of the Dulles South Rotary Club in Aldie, VA and they are now developing a service project on behalf of caregivers. (More on that soon.)
I am available to speak to groups in person or via Skype or FaceTime depending on distance and time available. There is never a charge for these events.
All you need to do is contact me via email bcarducci@Comcast.net to arrange a date and time.
Blessed Be Caregivers
