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.

    Hi friends,
    After viewing this tape? I thought WOW! Shelby (?) does a better job as a young adult than I do at 60 years old! And how “family always means the most?” That’s a motto everyone should hold dear to themselves. I wonder what she will do in college and beyond? She will most definitely go far! Take a look see!

  2. Wow, what an inspiring story. I’m always impressed when young people take this kind of initiative.

  3. Denise, not only does this story warm the heart but it is also should inspire everyone that regardless of the circumstance that “if there is a will there is a way”. This country needs more Shelby’s

  4. It’s humbling to see how a young child can find creative ways to cope with life’s challenges.
