Newest caregiver resource is reduced 60% in price

November 13, 2017

The idea behind “Daily Inspirations for Caregivers” is simple: we help family caregivers start every day well with beautifully-crafted messages that arrive by personalized email for one full year. It is a loving way to help yourself or a caregiver you know benefit from the empathy, encouragement, and support provided.

Each morning brings one of four kinds of inspirations:

  • •  A one- to two-minute video incorporating nature photography, original music, and Jim Miller’s voice.
  • •  A two- to three-minute audio by Jim offering a single positive caregiving message, often calling upon the wisdom of experienced family caregivers, many of them well-known.
  • •  A one-page writing by Jim about one aspect of caregiving that offers advice, encouragement, and support.
  • •  A photo-thought that incorporates one of Jim’s photographs with a memorable, affirming quotation.

Family caregivers report feeling better informed, more confident in their role, and hopeful about the way ahead. Recent feedback has included:

“Thank you for the words, the unpacking of those words, and the extraordinary photography to help illuminate the message. It is a tender and gentle gift to the heart.”
Janie C.
“Without fail I look forward each day to what I will be receiving from you, and I am never disappointed. You have an incredible ability to share the wisdom of yourself and others in a way that is always fresh, relevant, and impactful.”
 Paul J.
“I think I have not come upon anyone who has written from the heart so thoroughly, quietly, and humbly. All the good and ill of your life you have kneaded together into the perfect life-giving loaf of Love.”
Dai-En B.

If you’re a professional in a healthcare practice or a health-related organization, you can provide “Daily Inspirations for Caregivers” as a way of encouraging and empowering family caregivers of the ill, the injured, or the incapacitated. As you enable the more positive spirits of caregivers and consequently their care receivers, you promote healing and health all the way around, including with your own staff members.

Better yet, if your organization purchases subscriptions for individual caregivers, the cost is reduced even more, depending upon the quantity you order. The cost can be as low as $5.00 each.

Ongoing Support to the Bereaved

100 Healing Messages

In October 2010, I introduced a blog called “1-Minute Inspirations” in which I released a new video every Wednesday morning. The format was always the same: there was a beginning quotation followed by 60 seconds of narration, music, and photography. Each video was built around a single thought that provided a bit of momentary depth or encouragement or hope. People seemed to appreciate the brevity of the video and the personal integration of my writing, my voice, and my photography with Eric Clancy’s piano music.

“Why not try a similar approach for a more specific audience, built around a particular need?” I asked myself. So after a year of producing these weekly videos, I returned to an earlier professional interest and began creating a series of short messages for the bereaved. My initial idea was to create 50. Realizing there was so much that needed to be communicated, I doubled the number and titled the project, “100 Healing Messages for Your Grief.” This resource is now available to everyone, and you’re among the first to know about it.

This is how “100 Healing Messages” works:

Once you subscribe, or subscribe a friend, to these messages through the Willowgreen website, you’ll begin receiving a brief, personalized email every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning, introducing that day’s topic. A link within the email will lead you to a separate page where the video has been set up to play for you. Each video message is designed to console, validate, inform, and encourage, always ending on a hopeful note. The viewer can also download a beautifully formatted PDF of each message, suitable for reading, collecting, or sharing with others. If you would like to see a sample of the 100 Healing Messages and learn more about ordering this resource with all its 100 videos and PDFs, follow this LINK.

It has been a very full and challenging year of work and I’m pleased that everything has all come together so well. As you’ll see, “100 Healing Messages for Your Grief” carries a distinctive Willowgreen touch from beginning to end. I’m looking forward to offering a new form of grief support through the internet unlike anything that has been created to date. If you have any thoughts about this work once you’ve seen the samples noted above, I’d love to hear from you by email: jmiller@willowgreen.com.
