Today on Your Caregiving Journey: Healing


Today on Your Caregiving Journey: Healing

Christopher-Charles Chaney joined me to share how he healed after caregiving and how he helps others heal during caregiving. Listen to our conversation via the player, below.

You can connect with Christopher at the Second Annual National Caregiving Conference, which happens November 10 and 11 at the Chicago Marriott O'Hare. Christopher will lead a panel discussion, "Men Who Care: Few in numbers, but bold in dedication!" and a presentation, "Book it! How to Self-Publish Your Amazing Caregiving Story."

Christopher-Charles Chaney, family caregiving expert, national speaker, award-winning author, and CEO of Family CareLIVING, knows firsthand the benefits and challenges of being a family caregiver.

Christopher spent years caring for his mother, Mama Peaches, who passed in 2016 after suffering from dementia. His love and struggles as a caregiver inspired him to journal his experiences on Facebook in 2015. The popularity of Mama Peaches Facebook postings created a social media frenzy and the subsequent release of his award-winning book, Mama Peaches and Me.

Through his caregiving book series, radio talk show appearances, speaking engagements, and growing Mama Peaches Facebook group, Christopher provides essential information to family caregivers. Family CareLIVING, a division of the Christopher-Charles Chaney, Inc, offers CEUs for healthcare professionals.

His company also offers caregiving plays and caregiving art exhibitions designed to inspire community dialogue around the growing public health crisis of family caregiving. His resume includes working with the federal government for over twenty years, as well as working with local, state and national non-profit organizations to increase the awareness of family caregiving.

Being widely sought after by organizations and media outlets, Christopher is quickly becoming a recognizable face for family caregiving.

This was a great interview. Makes me extra sad that I won't be attending the Caregiving conference next month. I've been in a sour mood all day and listening to this program gave me the boost that I needed. First because a fellow author was featured. Second, because that author talked about something that I really wanted to hear about--writing about my caregiving experience for myself and to help others. I look forward to connecting with Mr. Chaney in the near future.
