Project Description

Maybe one day we’ll all get along. Some Day.

At least, so she had hoped before her passing.

In this episode of Keeping it REAL Caregiving, we celebrate Black History not just in the month of February, but all year.

This is a touching and heartwarming segment in which we learn from an elder (now deceased) who shares her insights about life, career, family, love and love lost.

Mrs. Ellen Katherine Hart granted KIRC an interview several years ago before physical and mental decline prevented the ability to maintain her independence and self-care.

You can watch the video interview and read more from Mrs. Hart in the Keeping it REAL Caregiving newsletter on Bulletin.

Maybe one day we'll all get along

Mrs. Ellen Katherine Hart

Here is an excerpt from that interview:

“I can relax more, and just do what I want to do. I want to go out? I go out. If I want to go on a cruise, I go on a cruise. If I want to stay home, I stay home. I don’t have anyone to boss me or tell me what to do. I can do whatever I like and I like that very much.

To see more video interviews, be sure to visit the Keeping it REAL Caregiving video library. You’ll find information from family caregivers, hear lessons-learned from male caregivers and find a selection of the KIRC Sunday Coffee Chat & Support Hour; the live streaming talk show with social media interaction.
