Celebrate Our 21st Birthday Party!!


Celebrate Our 21st Birthday Party!!

On August 3, 1996, I sat in the corner of my bedroom in my parents’ home and secured the domain name, Caregiving.com.

Let’s celebrate Caregiving.com's 21st birthday with a week-long celebration.

And, let's not just party, let's do what we do best: disrupt.

We’re celebrating all week by disrupting.

You already are a disruptor. The delivery of health care starts with you, continues because of you, and ends with you. Now, we’re disrupting together to reinvent health care by making sure the family caregiver always has what he or she needs in order to continue to be a provider in the health care system.

During the week of July 30, we’ll break to disrupt our life, our day, another family caregiver’s day and on social media. Each day during the week of July 30, I’ll pose an activity or a question. And, each day, when you join in that day’s disrupt action, you’ll be entered into a chance to win one of our daily prizes and grand prizes.

Here’s what the week of July 30 looks like:

Be sure to stop by Caregiving.com every day to participate and for a chance to win. Each day, a random participants will win one of our daily prizes which include:

  • "I Want You to Know", a straight from the heart guide to prepare your legacy of love by Leslie Cottrell Simonds;

  • Holistic Healthcare Kit: Double CD containing 45 minutes of beautiful original music for background listening and relaxation, and 45 minutes of guided meditations for understanding and utilizing the power of your emotions. Packaged along with The Yokibics Workbook for Everyday Living - 21 Exercises for Body and Soul by author Gael Chiarella Alba;

  • "Recipes for Success: Activity for Alzheimer's at your Fingertips," a 4X6 album filled with activities including activity recipes, personal stories and helpful tips by Julie Bigham;

  • Free two-day registration for a family caregiver or former family caregiver to our upcoming Second Annual National Caregiving Conference on November 10 and 11 in Chicago;

  • A copy of our Caregiving Cookbook, which features recipes from our members, a $10 Starbucks gift card and a one-hour phone consultation session and one complimentary 15-minute follow-up phone session with Lisa Riggi, a Certified Caregiving Consultant and a Certified Caregiving Educator.

  • Free virtual registration to watch the live streaming of our Second Annual National Caregiving Conference on November 10 and 11 in Chicago plus one free Organized Prescription List OR one Custom Daily Communication Log Sheet from Certified Caregiving Consultant Vivian Geary. A 30-minute consultation included.

On August 6, we’ll award one of these grand prizes to three random participants:
