Caregiving is expensive and costly for everyone involved in the care.

Caregiving and money go hand in hand. It either costs you for care, or cost you in wages to provide it. This section is for finding answers and options to lessen the financial impact of caregiving in your life. Resources available for the finances of caregiving:

Learn more about my book for caregivers. 

Check back here for a glimpse of what is in the book. 

  

When people tell you to take care of yourself, as a caregiver, it's frustrating.  

Most caregivers already know that and they are doing their best to try.  

How do you respond when people make suggestions or comment about your caregiving when they don't know about your situation? That advice may be free, but how can you trust it, if they don't fully understand your circumstances?


Take a look at the FREE download of my book and get expert advice that can help. 

My bet is you will want to share it with caregivers you know, because it's filled with unique insight and proven strategies for them. The book's content is based on my experience and many other professionals.

I know first hand what it's like being a caregiver because I began my journey years ago. In 2004 I started caregiving for my mother who developed severe dementia at age 59.  I understand struggles facing married and single caregivers with children, because I lived as both. I also live with a chronic pain disorder which adds another dimension of challenge to caregiving. I share  breakthrough news about how to create energy and sleep better with little effort. I don't provide medical advice, but I do share what has worked for me.    


You can learn easy ways to handle difficult people who seem to undermine your caregiving efforts. Learn tips on how to handle situations within caregiving that will help and not hinder your efforts. 




Books are like friendships in how they impact our lives and support us. Even if we put it on the shelf, we can always go back when we need it, so they are dependable in that way. Make this book your new friend who helps you with caregiving.

Coming Events

I'm creating courses to help caregivers with solutions and equip them more.  


Learning ways to cope with the common hardships in caregiving can validate their efforts and keep them in the game. 

I'm very excited for this space to grow into a place where caregivers seek refuge and gain empowerment. 


Without accountability and friendships people can become narrow minded, and caregiving is a kaleidoscopic experience with twists and turns that make up different situations as you go along.  Caregivers live with the stress of being tossed into chaos everyday, and if they don't take time to pull away from it, they fail to see the beauty in what they are doing.
