FINDING PURPOSE IN YOUR LIFE AFTER CAREGIVING IS OVER
Being a family caregiver can be both a full-time job and life’s sole purpose during its duration. One thing is certain, though: The cycle of life continues, and loved ones die.
What then? How do you cope with the void? How do you define a new purpose or reinvigorate an old one? Chris MacLellan, the Bow-Tie Guy, helped me sort it out.
The story of Chris and his partner, Richard, was chronicled as a 2015 Pulitzer Prize winning story in the Sun Sentinel, Florida. It is a story of healing and hope and has been read by almost half a million people. We spoke during an interview for my Caregiver Summit about the issue of what happens after caregiving.
