Welcome to the caregiving edition of Local Folks Podcast. Taking care of someone who, because of illness or injury, can no longer care for themselves is something that can happen to any of us. I remember when it happened to me. My father died unexpectedly, and just like that I was the primary care giver for my mother, and I had no idea how to proceed. I learned so much in the year I cared for mom, but I think my journey would have been a lot easier if I had been able to listen to the wisdom other folks have gained from caring for an ailing family member. In this first episode Vicki talks about what she has learned from caring for elderly parents.
