WAGS of SCI: The Podcast - Ep. 28 - Caregivers Awareness Month: Why Should You Care??!

Why does November matter? It’s Caregivers Awareness Month coming up ALL November long – and we need YOU to participate in order to create some much needed conversation around caregiving and SCI.

Join hosts Brooke and Elena as they discuss Caregivers Awareness Month, and what they’re doing with the WAGS of SCI platform to highlight WAGS of SCI’s issues, celebrations and milestones worldwide.

The women discuss International WAGS of SCI Day – which takes place on November 4th each year, and what that celebration means for you and your life. How can you love and appreciate YOURSELF and all you do? Celebrating your lifestyle is so important and such a valuable part of self care… how will YOU support yourself this November 4th?

Brooke and Elena give a quick update on some of the biggest issues caregivers face including: unpaid spousal/common law caregiving, and why this unfair issue is so incredibly important to put a spotlight on this month. With more media coverage on unpaid family caregivers relieving the healthcare system due to Covid-19, how will this impact our campaigning this November? How can we as a community come together and actually create some awareness and change when it comes to equality in caregiving?
