Ep 3: Becoming a Caregiver for Others – and Yourself
A conversation with Dr. Larry Studt
April 30, 2021
At some time in our lives, we will all be caregivers or will receive care from others. Dr. Larry Studt talks with host Lisa Wells of the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Eau Claire County about his own caregiving journey. Larry’s wife, Rachel, experienced a rare form of young onset dementia, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, which unexpectedly thrust him into a caregiving role. Larry talks about the challenges this created, the emotions and guilt that come with caregiving, the importance of accepting help, the need for self-care, and the search for hope.
