Podcast: Grace and Grit During Caregiving

Deb Kelsey-Davis, RN, MHSA and Colleen Kavanaugh, CCC, CDCS, CDP joined me to discuss their National Caregiving Conference session, "Think About It. And Change Everything with Grit, Grace and Gratitude." During their session, they'll help us understand how cultivating Gratitude and uncovering Grace generates the Grit needed to face the challenging circumstances of family caregiving.

Join us for the Second Annual National Caregiving Conference in person or virtually on November 10 and 11 in Chicago.

About Deb and Colleen

Deb and Colleen measure their caregiving years in decades and agree that they were not prepared for the emotions, stress, and life-changing circumstances that went with the job. They discovered their resilience came from the similar characteristics of tenacity, tenderness, and acceptance. Deb and Colleen now combine their diverse sets of professional and personal caregiving experience to help others realize the tools to get through any situation intrinsically exist within each of us through their program, My Grit, Grace + Gratitude.

Deb is an author, national speaker, and caregiver to her parents. With caregiving as the most important role of her lifetime, her mission is to focus on what really matters. She launched Soul2Soul Solutions with Nourish™, a faith-based program for family caregivers. Then, co-founded Sagacity.Care™ to meet consumer demands for credible, personalized health content.

Colleen cared for her parents for a decade, and she now works to empower family caregivers across the country via one-on-one consulting, national speaking, podcasting, and blogging. Specializing in dementia care and Eckhart Tolle's teachings on presence, Colleen, brings a unique perspective to clients where practicality meets spirituality.
