A Thousand Words

Our caregivers hustle between chores, caregiving, nurturing, and life. Oftentimes, without a moment to spare or a minute to pause. The ability to enjoy a sunset, a flower, or a pretty picture will often elude a caregiver as they rush to the next task or next emergency at hand.

To be able to capture a moment, any moment, may seem trivial to most but for one caregiver, it meant a moment of solitude and enjoyment … it meant a moment to connect with her family.

This caregiver provides Tier 3 level care to her veteran spouse and 3 children. The veteran deployed to Iraq in 2004-2005 and experienced significant trauma resulting in PTSD, invisible injuries, and other challenges that render the veteran 100% disabled. The caregivers duties resulted in her giving up her passion – photography. The caregiver came to QoLF desiring to capture her past-time. QoLF was pleased to facilitate a laptop, printer and software which allowed the caregiver to re-engage in photography, both for pleasure and as a source of income for her family.

From the caregiver:

Hi Carmen,

I wanted to share with you a few pictures we got to take of the eclipse. Christian and I took these together. It was a great family event! We would not have been able to do this without my new computer and photoshop. Thank you again!
