With the arrival of wintry June this conversational series commenced from the warmth of our own homes. In our first session we discovered that it is indeed lovely to connect from the comfort of our own homes and yet be able to talk face to face via the online Zoom app.
Our conversational theme for this first weekly conversation was the scope of the carer role and what it requires of the carer. Unsurprisingly this topic took us far and wide as we explored the extent of the adaptive abilities that we use to fulfil our role as family carers.
It was delightful to discover a common experience of how sacred and precious the heart space is for family carers. For those in conversation this week it was agreed that the love bond cuts through all other layers of the role and reminds us of why the role matters and why we are committed to it.
