About Denise Brown

I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched CareGiving.com 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.

    I want to invest in learning more CNA tasks and doing them well and with less stress. I am always afraid Mom will get hurt under my “watch” or care. If I watch our new CNA more I can learn more I think. Yep! There’s my December – albeit end of the month – investment.

    I truly want to invest in learning to be more patient with my Mom’s symptoms of alzheimers. I feel horrible at times that I can’t handle everything. I want to invest more in the love and time I have left with her. My heart breaks for her and I truly do not know what I can do to help her anymore….Ian

      Hi Ian–We so understand the feeling of powerlessness, of feeling helpless to the disease process. It’s so hard to handle it all. Being with your mom is the best help you can offer to her. Your presence is what your mom needs most.

      One of our members (Bob, who cares for his wife) said this to me during one of our podcasts: “You don’t have to be tough every moment. You just have to be tough this moment.”

      It’s one moment at a time.

      Please keep us posted as you can.
