About 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.

    @Denise, this has been a wonderful week of Celebrations. Loved every daily challenge. Can’t remember when I’ve had so much fun! Came at a great time for us, as we are relatively house bound. Well done, and eternal thanks for all you are and all you do. As I greedily chant, more parties!
