Many family members are thrust into caregiving responsibilities when an aging parent has an accident or health crisis. The consequences of being unprepared can be devastating.
You are in the emergency room with your loved one. The nurse wants to know: What medications is your family member taking and who are the doctors? Do you know?
Taking care of an aging or ill parent can be absolutely overwhelming and can last on average, seven years. That’s a very long time and a lot of uncertainty. As your caregiving role intensifies, life gets increasingly difficult to manage. The to-do lists are long and seem endless. The emotional toll is huge. At the end of your caregiving years, you deserve peace of mind, to be able to say that you had “no regrets,” and to treasure the memories.

Working one-on-one with families or in specially designed workshops, we create your personal caregiving roadmap together. Addressing your specific concerns and needs and the needs of the person you are caring for, you will be empowered to manage responsibilities, save time, money, and have peace of mind.

My Caregiving Story
A seasoned family caregiver
When mom asked if I would take her to a doctor’s appointment in 2003, I had no idea I would end up becoming a caregiver for 14 years. That’s a long, long time!
At the time, mom was a healthy, active, energetic octogenarian. As she got older, I was there for her as she experienced one unexpected health crisis after another, eventually struggling with vision, hearing, mobility, and other issues of great concern and decline.
Navigating this journey by trial and error, I figured out the do’s and don’ts of caregiving almost completely on my own.
As an only child and dutiful daughter, I put mom’s care and quality of life as a top priority. Alway asking first, what were her desires and needs, we navigated “the caregiving years” together.
Never knowing when the end might surprise us, we lived life fully, expressed our love frequently, and created memories that I treasure today.
The time I spent as a caregiver changed my life forever. At the end of our journey, I was able to say that I had no regrets.
Mom died peacefully February 20, 2017.
