The majority of us have not taken a class on how to be a family caregiver – we have learned as we go. But, at some time along the journey, we lose energy or run into dead ends.

I like to empower the entire family in caregiving journeys and provide information to older adults so they can age wisely knowing how, when and where to design their road maps so they can have life their way. When you search the internet for resources you can get lucky and find a true professional but most of what you land on is big business that has paid to come up first. Starting with my free classes, you will be given sound advice by a professional, and be directed to creditable organizations that have passed the test of time with integrity and professionalism.

In almost every class that I have done over the past 34 years someone says, “I sure wish I had this information before I got so caught up in this process –  I could have saved time, money and most of all stress!”
