About This Class
No records
The refrigerator is full of odds n’ ends. You’re tired at the end of the day, but dinner must be made. Adding a little of this and some of that can create a hotdish, even if there’s no recipe. Just throw something together and it’ll be good enough for now. What works for making casseroles doesn’t work for giving care, however. Yet today, millions of women (and men) nationwide are becoming primary caregivers to aging parents, spouses or loved ones – and there’s no recipe. Kari Berit provides the ingredients you need to create a more joyful caregiving journey.
