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.

    For February’s Happiness Project I am going to “host” a 65th birthday party for my older sister when she comes to IL to visit Mom and me from CA. Wherever she wants to go out to and for whatever the total bill comes to be. Yes! I’m excited!

    Our February started out with hosting our Annual Super Bowl get together. This year was so different. AH and I together with Karl & Lynn always hosted a potluck during the Super Bowl Game at their house. This year is the first Super Bowl since Lynn’s passing so it was going to feel awkward. One couple who usually comes really wanted to host it at their house this year but we deferred to Karlwho still wanted to host it with us. At the last minute, Karl realized he would be out of town for the Big Day since it was his birthday weekend. We did meet at the other couple’s house but they still made it “our” party. We were very grateful for the help and care they showed to us! Our goal was met to continue the tradition in spite of our loss. Relationships for us, are very important!
