A caregiving experience can feel completely out of your control. We want to give you back some control; create a plan for your worries with a Family Emergency Plan.
Schedule a one-hour meeting with one of our Certified Caregiving Consultants, below, to start the planning process. After your one-hour meeting, you can decide if you'd like to schedule additional consultations or have enough to continue planning your own. You always can contact your Consultant at a later date to schedule appointments.
In preparation for your meeting, download your Family Emergency Plan.
Denise Brown, CCC
Denise can help if you own a small business and care for a family member and if you care for parents, spouses, siblings and other family members. She uses the Pay from the Heart model with her Family Emergency Plan clients. When you schedule your session, you'll select the amount you want to pay with a suggestion of paying at least $20. After meeting with Denise for 60 minutes, you'll receive an invoice to pay the amount you indicated.
Denise began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched Caregiving.com in 1996. She completed training to become a life coach in 2004 in order to better serve her clients and Caregiving.com visitors.
