Join the TEDMED Discussion on the Caregiving Crisis

Last spring, “The Caregiving Crisis” was selected as one of The 20 Great Challenges of Health and Medicine at TEDMED2012.

A Great Challenge, as defined by TEDMED, is a health-related problem that is big, complex, intractable, fundamental, and virtually permanent (or at least, likely to persist for decades). TEDMED is a community of people who are passionate about imagining the future of health and medicine.

In order to hear your input about the caregiving crisis, TEDMED has launched a discussion forum. Feel free to share a question, idea or insight here. Sharing your story, frustrations and experiences is a great way to DISRUPT.

About Denise

Profile photo of Denise
I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched in 1996 to help and support them. Through my blog, I share words of comfort and offer coping strategies and tips. I also write opinion pieces about recent research, community programs and media coverage of caregiving issues. I've written several caregiving books, including "The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey," "Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers" and "After Caregiving Ends, A Guide to Beginning Again." You can purchase my books and schedule a coaching call with me in our store.
