The Red Shoes
As our population in America ages there is more and more demand for qualified caregivers to help provide the basic support that an elderly person needs when their own powers of personal management begin to fail. Often such caregivers are children, relatives, or other friends of the person in need. When that is the case, it is critical that the caregiver not lose sight of their personal limits and crossover into the dangerous area of sacrificing themselves for the sake of another. Noble as that may sound, it is a recipe for disaster, not only for the caregiver and the people who depend on them, but for the elderly person in need as well. The Red Shoes is based on the true story of one caregiver who was both privileged and challenged to be to provide support for an elderly widow, living alone, during the last year of her life.
