In this Elizz video, Candis talks about her experience as a family caregiver for her father-in-law, who passed away in 2016, and her mother-in-law, who has Alzheimer’s disease. Candis shares her story about the challenges she faces as a caregiver, especially when family dynamics comes into play. She also explains why being a family caregiver is a different role than “just being a family member,” using the example of a parent taking care of a young child. Knowing what she does now about being a family caregiver, Candis gives advice to her younger self, which every family caregiver can apply to their own experience no matter where they are on their caregiving journey.
At Elizz, we provide caregiver support for you and home care services for those who depend on you. Elizz is a Canadian company powered by Saint Elizabeth, a national not-for-profit health care organization that has been caring for Canadians since 1908.
