Drawing a Care Map

humanistic --------------------------------------- mechanistic

I contacted the Atlas of Caregiving and Rajiv Mehta replied:
We have found that the value to individuals has come not only from the final artifact (the diagram), but even more from the thinking that goes into its creation (if the person draws his own), and the conversations and reflections sparked by discussing the CareMap with others. This recent news article gives some insight into this: Caregivers Draw Support By Mapping Their Relationships
Of course, the point I’m making is true for any graph, diagram, etc.!
Also, your readers would likely appreciate a link to this page, which has more information on drawing a CareMap:
