In this episode our guests discuss their documentary film exploring the work of professional caregivers, and what they have learned about the caregivers' unique joys and stressors. They want to raise public consciousness of the nature of caregivers' work, the situations of their clients, and the impact of this work on those who provide care and service to people in trying situations. They explore options for caregiver self-care and address organizational structures that provide crucial peer support to help manage the stress experienced by professional caregivers.
