Which words describe the role of being a caregiver? Take Comfort author Denise M. Brown takes 100 words -- including the unlikely "blizzard," "kitchen," and "umbrella" -- and transforms each into a reflection.
The reflections focus on family caregivers' reality, sprinkled with hope. Denise's insights about the caregiving experience feel like a warm hug, a helpful smile, and an encouraging nudge. Take Comfort will become your daily companion, offering support, understanding, and acceptance.
Denise has launched several initiatives to ensure the voice and experiences of the family caregiver receive the spotlight they deserve. She launched her first online caregiving support group in 1996, and was the first to feature family caregiver blogs. She convened a National Caregiving Conference for four years (2016-2019), hosted a 36-hour Christmas chat for six years, and celebrated creative side of family caregivers with an online Caregiving Art Show. Her research shed a light on family caregiver stress, the needs of working family caregivers, and the challenges faced by family caregivers. She was a 2017 Influencer in Aging.
What an empathetic, helpful read. Only wish I read this when I first found myself as a caregiver.
