Check out my interview with Dennis from Psychreg.
I've just watched the first ten minutes of this and I just want to say how powerful it is.
As you know, Jon is an unpaid carer for me and I also have close family members in the same position. This is really helpful.
You've also raised some really important points about the trajectory of being a carer, how the world changes but for many people caring for loved ones, they are unable to move with that world. Just reached the point about support for carers who have lost loved ones and what that means for the carer. You're so right, there is too much expectation for a button to be pressed after loss, and an alternative life of employment to magically appear.
I think that employment and productivity expectations are too high, and realistic options too few. This has really got me thinking. If you would like to talk in the future we may have potential for a campaign collaboration here from both your perspective and also the parallels that we see here at ASW.
Thank you for sharing this here.
Thanks for watching and for the supportive comments, Laura. Would definitely be interested in talking about a potential campaign collaboration.
No problem Mike, I’ll watch the rest soon. It was really interesting and you put everything across so well.
Sounds good. I think there’s a lot to be done here, too many people struggle to survive due to a lack of opportunity. As you said, it’s the last thing a carer needs when grieving, after years of taking care of a loved one.
Awesome Mike, I'll give it a watch later. Congratulations and great work. We need to keep the fire of activism alive.
