Caregiving is just what I do
In this episode, Sheila, a Nehiyaw (Cree) woman from Treaty 6 Territory, explains how she supports an adult son living with an acquired brain injury and a genetic syndrome. While co-hosts Katie and Sibtain prepare for this exchange, Sheila explains the meaning of their tobacco offering. As Sheila describes how her son navigates his health conditions and how she supports him, you’ll find yourself reflecting the terms “caregiver” and “disability” in a new way.
"I didn't think twice about if it was going to be hard or easy or how much time it's going to take out of my life; I just knew I had to do it." – Sheila
