It’s a cook-free (and dirty dish-less!) Progressive Party.

Throughout the week of December 4, we’re stopping by the blogs of family caregivers, dropping off holiday well-wishes and good cheer. Our party also includes companies that provides services and/or products to help family caregivers.

You can see the participating blogs and websites here. Simply visit each site sharing comfort, cheer and your story as you click along. Be sure to say you’re visiting because of’s Holiday Progressive Blog Party.

Because no party is complete without presents, we’ve got prizes! We’re giving away a gift a day on Just post a comment on the site each day during the week of December 4 for a chance to win a present created by one of Santa’s special helpers.

We’re also giving away prizes at the end of our week:

—autographed copies of my books: The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey; Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers; Take Comfort, Too, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers; and Good Morning! Sunny Reflections to Start Your Day.

—a $15 Amazon gift card from SandwichINK (you also have a chance to win a $15 Amazon gift card when you visit this site);

–autographed copy of “Forever a Caregiver” by Trish Hughes Kreis (our own Trish!) (you’ll also have a chance to win when you visit Trish’s site);

—and a grand prize worth $225: three free coaching sessions with me.

Have fun! If have any questions, please feel free to email me.

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.

Merry Christmas! I’m dressed for the occasion in bright red and am so excited to join in the fun! Thanks for the fun invite. Have a lovely week and I’ll be peeking in as often as caring for elderly parents and babysitting grandchildren will allow – hmmmm, I might even bring them with me! Happy Holidays to y’all!
