Podcasts can be a great way to unwind, make housework more enjoyable, or make a daily commute less stressful. The San Diego Tribune has compiled a list of caregiving specific podcasts that share stories from different perspectives. Some are specific to medical conditions of the care recipient, such as Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Others share inspiring stories and lessons learned throughout their caregiving journey. Some provide financial and COVID-19 related recommendations and resources for caregivers. There is something for everyone, whether you are looking for a reason to smile or searching for important information.
There are also support groups that have moved from a virtual platform due to the global pandemic. However, these groups have found connecting on a podcast manner sparks more listeners and participants. This way, if you do not have time to attend a specific support group, you can simply listen to a podcast. Podcasts allow for a sense of support and community, no matter the distance.
