“It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.” (Lena Horne)

Being a family caregiver has become a way of life.  You are in the thick of things. There are so many ways we can work together to make sure you don’t get lost in the fog of caregiving. I can offer support, comfort, and really listen to you as we explore ways to meet your greatest needs while caring for your loved-one.
