Show Notes

Sometimes we can just be too close to a situation. We don't want to see what is right in front of us. This was true for Rev. Jocelyn when she was facing her beloved father's battle with Alzheimer's. She initially didn't want to see her strong, capable, and loving dad was having issues with memory loss right before her eyes. When she did face it, however, she decided that she was going to her best, along with her brother, to find the happy moments and memories in this journey, as well as supporting their mum, who was his primary caregiver.


This is a great conversation about being human, and being vulnerable, even when you supposedly have all the tools, knowledge, and expertise, as Jocelyn does in the field of trauma and grief. It highlights how you can bring joy into a situation that seems overwhelming. How you can also use these opportunities to ask all those questions you've always wanted to know the answers to. This is also a wonderful conversation around caregiving and how to support your loved ones in that role. Enjoy!
