CHA Releases Video Telling the Pandemic Story Through the Eyes of the Caregivers

It’s a perspective that needs to be shared: the COVID-19 pandemic through the experiences of Connecticut’s caregivers.  In documentary style, through the eyes and voices of hospital professionals from across the state, Caring Voices, Caring Hands weaves a compelling story of the initial days of the pandemic, the impact of the response on individuals and their families, the uncertainties of combatting an unknown virus, the support of their colleagues, organizations, and communities, and most importantly, the motivation that keeps them coming back each day and looking forward to the future.  While produced primarily for the healthcare workforce, in acknowledgement of their dedication, sacrifice, and determination, it’s a story that will be shared with the public, as well, as we look back on the challenges and successes of the past two years.
