A Caregiver Conversation by Carallel: The Importance of Celebrating Our Caregiving Accomplishments

Caring for a loved one is often a long and taxing road and it can be easy to lose sight of what we’re accomplishing. So In this Caregiver Conversation by Carallel, our Director of Caregiver Engagement, Matt Perrin, is joined by Carallel’s Care Advocate team to discuss:

  • How caregiving success comes in all shapes and sizes
  • The importance of celebrating our caregiving wins
  • Examples of our recent wins (to cheer each other on!)

Because it’s important to remember that there’s no perfect caregiver and that we’re all just doing the best we can.
