Idena is a Caregiver for her husband, a Vietnam Vet. They struggled to communicate, and went through periods where he simply didn’t want to talk. She would get frustrated when he spoke of the war, because in her mind, it’s long over. But she kept trying. She even moved from Georgia to Florida in search of Caregiving support. Idena’s resilience paid off. She contacted the VA in Orlando and discovered the Building Better Caregivers 6-week online workshop. She learned tools to help her better manage stress and emotions, which laid the foundation for better communication with her husband. Idena learned to be a better Caregiver, and in return, she learned to take better care of herself.
