Caring for a loved one can be so stressful that the positive gains are often overlooked. In today’s episode New Yorker Priya Soni talks about how caring for her late father transformed her life. Her father had a neurological condition that was never properly diagnosed, and grew worse over the course of twelve years. Priya’s journey with her father through his “mystery illness” led her to create The Caregiving Effect, a project whose mission is to build a movement of mentors through the power of shared stories. Tune in for a thought-provoking conversation about family, culture and spirituality, and a dad from Punjab who lives on through his daughter’s work.
