Course Testimonials

Jackie Ann Schwabe, CEO, MindLight LLC, says this about our program: '

"You have literally changed my business model, changed my view on caregiving, and helped me see a path forward that didn’t exist before." Jackie cares for her mother and mother-in-law while raising her four children including her daughter with autism. Jackie also is a Certified Caregiving Consultant and Educator. She'll soon be a trainer, teaching our course to students.

Janice Shriver, a student in our January 2016 session, says this about our program:

“Please know that any opportunity you have to work with Denise Brown will benefit you as an individual and as a caregiver. Denise is one of the most intelligent, perceptive, yet unassuming people you will ever meet. Her curriculum is based on a lifetime of hard work and the innate ability to understand human nature. At the same time, she is approachable and passionate about her vision for this program and how it can benefit caregivers.

“The program follows on two concurrent tracks: from the start you will be making preparations to start a business based on your own particular experience, and at the same time you become intimately familiar with Denise’s program, The Caregiving Years, which you can/will use in your prospective business. You will have unlimited access to interacting with the other students in your class, comparing experiences and ideas. A comfortable level of computer knowledge and familiarity with social media would help with your success. In addition, you have access to an immense archive of materials and resources appropriate to caregiving situations. You will be well on your way to having tools you need to start a business, plus a network of information and support.

“Denise is convinced that this is an untapped and essential market, and this training will fill a present need, well into the future.”

Leslie Cottrell Simonds, Certified Caregiving Consultant™, and owner of The Visionary Passage, says:

“I first came across Caregiving.com when I was interested in broadening the scope of my already existing consultant business. Before taking Denise Brown’s Certified Caregiving Consultant class, my business focused primarily on end of life planning services. I am thrilled to now be able to offer strong and practical as well as emotional support to the everyday warriors who care for loved ones in addition to juggling their ongoing lives. I also rediscovered my passion for offering strategical tools to those that are beginning to think about the next chapter of life beyond caregiving. The unexpected bonus was finding a new group of like minded people that are passionate about providing support for caregivers, each with their own unique brand of magic. Denise is one of the most generous online business owners I have come across in my journey through courses and certifications. She is positively embracing her community through information freely offered on her website including webinars, chats and forums. The same generosity extends to her students in class and beyond. If you are looking for an opportunity to dig deeper in providing service to those that are in the trenches giving care to their loved ones, look no further.”
