Clients I'm Seeking:

 

My clients are family caregivers--persons caring for aging parents, spouses and other family members. I help them develop coping strategies to deal with the difficult days of caregiving. And, through coaching, my clients find a healthy perspective about a challenging time.

About My Business:

 

I began working with family caregivers in 1990, launching Caregiving.com in 1996. My insights about the family caregiver experience have been featured in Time magazine, The Wall Street Journal and Chicago Tribune and on SmartMoney.com. Caregiving.com features the blogs of family caregivers, weekly words of comforts, free webinars and online support groups. Visitors also can join the site's Caregiving Happiness Project, which looks to determine if small, daily changes can add happiness during a difficult time in life. A campaign featuring the stories of former family caregivers called You'll Be Okay debuted on the site in November 2010. A certified professional coach, I help family caregivers find the answers to their questions: Why me? Why now? What now? My Internet talk show, Your Caregiving Journey, airs several times a week at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/caregiving. I've authored four books for family caregivers: Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers; Take Comfort, Too, More Reflections of Hope for Caregivers; Good Morning! Sunny Reflections to Start Your Day; and The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey. I received my coach training in 2004 through IPEC and is certified by the International Coach Federation. I'm a board member for two organizations: Guild for the Blind, which helps persons with low vision; and for National Certification Board for Alzheimer Care, which works to standardize care provided to persons with Alzheimer's by professional caregivers.
