Congratulations to our first round of students who have successfully completed our Certified Caregiving Consultant™ training program. The following graduates are now, officially, Certified Caregiving Consultants™:
Sally has worked in various clerical capacities
for fifty-five years. She also has worked closely with elderly and disabled people including in low income housing and in nursing homes. She volunteered and worked at a small community library for approximately forty years in my spare time primarily assisting patrons with finding research material. Since retiring for the fourth time she has been working with the staff at the local Family & Aging Agency as well as ADRC working mostly with elderly. Looking forward, she intends to assist family caregivers in researching and finding Services, durable medical products, and support groups. Her primary focus will be toward elderly needs of low income families and will be pro-bono. Sally is also one of our Volunteer Caregiving Researchers. You can send a note of congrats to Sally via her profile page: @sara32742.
Colleen brings her decade of family caregiving experience and training to empower and uplift family caregivers step-by-step. While caring for her mother with cancer and father with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, working and raising a family, she could never imagine seeing the other side of life after caregiving. Her feeling of isolation and the lack of understanding from others who were not in her situation have called her to help current family caregivers from feeling the same things. Colleen works with clients to create proactive strategies that encourage thriving within the demanding caregiving role. Colleen is also one of our Volunteer Caregiving Researchers. Be sure to watch Colleen’s free webinar, THE DREAM TEAM: Creating a Team for a Successful Caregiving Season. Visit Colleen’s website, The Longest Dance, to learn how to hire Colleen as a consultant.
