Caregiver Saathi brings to you Conversations with Gentle Warriors! A series of our Facebook LIVE sessions where caregivers share their caregiving journeys, now in a podcast format.
Welcome to the 3rd episode of Conversations with Gentle Warriors.
We bring you the story of Jova, a gentle warrior who is an active caregiver to her father affected by dementia, Parkinson’s disease and brain tuberculosis. She talks to us about managing all her caregiving responsibilities as well as studying.
She discusses how caregiving has made her self-reliant and taught her to make the right choices for herself as well as make hard decisions on the behalf of the family.
“If we have people who have our backs and who can push us to pursue our dreams, to become better and become more patient and kind. I think that this caregiving journey has been that experience for me”
She also talks about what success means to her in caregiving and how the support of her family is important to her while fulfilling her role as a caregiver.

Sharing your story helps understand yourself — feelings, passions, hopes. It lightens the load and offers relief from loneliness, anxiety, anger or guilt. Our experiences and hopes can benefit others – to know that the challenges are the same, learn new ways to cope and care… they aren’t alone but part of a team.
