About This Episode

On today’s episode of the Tuesday People Podcast, we tip our hats to caregivers everywhere.

We hear Morrie’s thoughts on being cared for in his final days, and discuss the importance of self-care for those who dedicate their lives to helping others they love. To all of the caregivers out there, we salute you.

    The speech you gave over the weekend was nice for Augie. You always know what to say right away. When I was taking care of my husband I needed to get away and for me just an 1 hour or 1 1/2 hours did it, as long as I went to the beach. Amazing what healing powers water has. I did that a few times a week and then felt so refreshed to carry on. I feel bad that I never completed nursing program. I am sure I was one sometime in a previous life. (ha), I did what I could and never thought I was cheated in any way. You just have to deal with what comes along.
    I donated what I could to Augies Quest and also the garden for the kids at the orphanage.
