I am a daughter, mother, grandmother, sister, friend, reader, story writer,
attention payer, wanderer, picture taker, hiker.
Caregiver was not on my list. Yet for six years I accompanied my mother to her end of days, learning (and forgetting what I learned) as I went.
I come here as an ally to those who are or will be
caring for a loved one.

Let’s build a community of caregivers!

I invite you to join me here for encouragement, ideas, information about aging, and “permission” to feel everything you feel on your caretaking journey. And fun stuff too!
Along with caregiver resources, you can also follow my path to publication of my memoir about life with Mama,
coming October 2022 from She Writes Press.
