We search for help through books or classes or films specific to the topic of caregiving.  However, there is wisdom to be learned and applied from a curriculum a little less specific and rigorous.

That said, not all books, documentaries, TV series, and movies listed are directly related to dementia and our role as caregivers.  If we look only in places we expect to find suggestions and answers, we may miss some of the wisest teachers we are ever given.

I Forgive You Forget A Caregiver's Resource

Resources

Having an open heart to all forms of information opens all doors.  So, yes, we can learn from Mr. Fred Rogers and Breaking Bad, The 36 Hour Day and The Green Mile, Longmire and Eckhart Tolle.

These diverse Resources offer understanding, ah-ha moments, humor and solutions to problems.

As a wise friend reminds me, “For today, stay awake and listen closely, you may find a teacher where you were not expecting one.”
