What is a Caregiver?


This episode of Living Hope is a continuation of a pervious conversation about being a Caregiver with Stephanie Ruvalcaba Ho. What is a Caregiver? If you provide help to another person in need, you are a caregiver. Caregivers can be professional – hired through an agency or a family member stepping up.  Caregivers come in all different types – the one who takes care of all the medical needs, runs errands, meals, personal needs.  There is a lot to being a Caregiver, many challenges, roll coaster of emotions. Even with all these feelings there are some good things that can come out of this difficult situation. Listen as we have a very open and honest discussion here only on OC Talk Radio, Orange County’s only community radio station streaming live from UC I Beall Applied Innovation at the Cove.

This episode of Living Hope is dedicated to all Caregivers and thank them for their care, support and love during our journey.  I’d like to end with a quote from Former First Lady, Rosalynn Carter: “There are only four kinds of people in this world: those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregivers. Caregiving is universal.”
