Get Caregiving Answers During Consulting for Good on April 7

Denise
A caregiving experience will bring lots of questions and not many answers or so it seems.

We can help you get your answers on April 7 during our special event, Consulting for Good. On April 7, our Certified Caregiving Consultants™ will be available in our chatrooms to answer questions, share resources and offer ideas. Our consultants will man our chatrooms from 9 a.m. ET until 5 p.m. ET. You can join the chatrooms at any time during that window to connect with our consultants.

Our consultants who will be helping on April 7 include:

Lillie Fuller
Lillie is a former family caregiver who cared for her Grandmother and both parents. She most recently cared for my mom for the past 20 years. Lillie has been an active member of Caregiving.com for the past four years. She is a graduate of the very first Certified Caregiving Consultant course from January 2016. Lillie began moderating chats on Caregiving.com in 2015 and currently moderates the After Caregiving Ends chat on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET. Lillie volunteered in our 36-hour Christmas chats in 2015, 2016 and 2017, manning the late-night shift.

He pursues a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health specializing in Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Counseling. As a freshman family caregiver, Andrew is asking questions and finding answers within, cultivating loving-kindness for himself so that he may support his carees, spread compassion to the healthcare system and be the change that he wants to see in the world.

I also will be available throughout the day. I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched a business to help them in 1995. I debuted Caregiving.com in 1996 and continue to help and support those who currently care and those who previously cared for a family member. I help my parents and an aunt and provide a weekly break to a neighbor who cares for her sister.

Our consultants can help you with your caregiving worries including:

  • managing family dynamics,

  • finding resources in your community,

  • making a good decision,

  • coping with stress,

  • whether or not you're doing enough.


Our consultants have a personal caregiving story and have completed our training program to deepen their understanding of the caregiving experience. Our consultants also focus on listening to you and understanding your unique caregiving situation.

Consulting for Good also will be a fundraiser for our National Caregiving Respite Fund. Anyone who joins us can donate to our fund. Our suggested donation is $5 but you can donate any amount you'd like.
