Allison J. Applebaum: I’m so honored to share a part of my caregiving story on National Family Caregivers Day

Allison J. Applebaum, Writer, Speaker, Researcher, shared on LinkedIn adding:

“I’m so honored to share a part of my caregiving story on National Family Caregivers Day! Taking care of my Dad was the most challenging and meaningful experience my life, and remaining connected to my authentic sense of self was one of the most important steps I took to survive what became an ultramarathon of caregiving, challenge, and loss.”

“Caregivers are an essential part of the care team for every person who has cancer, and that experience can often be difficult and stressful.

But who we are as people does not change when we become caregivers, says Dr. Allison J. Applebaum, Ph.D., a psychologist and the founding director of the Caregiver’s Clinic at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Dr. Applebaum’s own experience while caring for her father taught her how to reconnect with herself in ways she’d forgotten (hint). Watch the full video to hear more about how to navigate caregiving and grief.”
