"It’s an imperfect business being a caregiver.”
-Kitch Loftus-Mussari

The centerpiece of our first episode about caregiving is an interview Kitch and I recorded in the Garden of Life. It was a beautiful summer day when Kitch sat down in front of the waterfall to tell her story, and what a story it is.

To use a phrase coined by our dear friend, the late, Brendan Vaughan, she was at the top of her game.

She speaks softly and convincingly about what goes on in the mind of a caregiver. Her words are thoughtful and very poignant as she shares her hopes, fears, successes and failures.

“I had no medical background. I can’t even stand to see a needle put in my arm to take blood tests, so this isn’t my strongest suit. But you say to yourself, you, you have to do it.”

“When you’re put in the role of a caregiver, you just look around and say, this is what needs to be done. You try to get rid of the lump in your throat and do it to the best of your ability.”

“My biggest fear was bringing you home and being by myself. I knew that there was a support system. I could call Beverly Harostock, and I think I called her 18 times the day after you came home, because there were things that I just didn’t know or understand, and she walked me through everything very calmly.”

“I think the biggest flaw that a caregiver has is trying to be perfect and assuming that you can do everything, and you don’t need any help, because after about a week and a half, I just started to cry and cry and cry.”

The episode ends with a Heart Scene Commentary about caregiving and the importance of a positive attitude. It was inspired by an e-mail from Lori Chase, Director, Start! Heart Walk, and a column about the importance of maintaining a positive attitude written by Carl Mays, a motivational speaker and the author of Winning Thoughts.

There is something very special about this episode, but I can’t put my finger on exactly what it is.

It may be the setting. It may be is the honesty and sincerity of the storyteller. It may just be the insight one gets into the goodness of the heart of the storyteller. Whatever it is, we think you will enjoy the way Kitch tells her story.

We invite you to join us this Sunday at 11:30 a.m. on WBRE TV for Heart Scene: A Journey of Discovery and Recovery, Part 16,The Caregiver, Part 1. We think it’s a Windsor Park Story that you will really enjoy.
