I want to make your caregiving life easier and less stressful by providing you with information you need (or will need) to care for your aging loved one, who might be a parent, spouse, partner, relative, or friend. I’m on the journey with you, caring for my 82-year-old mother.

Dive Into Caregiving is a weekly blog where we can share what we’re learning and help each other find answers to questions. Tips, solutions, information, and the occasional rant — it’s all about figuring out what we need to know to help the people we love. For example, what services does a home health company provide and will Medicare pay for those services? Or, where in her house might your loved one have stashed her insurance policies?

Please let me know what’s keeping you up at night or driving you crazy. What information are you looking for but haven’t found? I can’t answer all of your questions and I can’t give you legal advice, but I can help you through the information maze.

Who am I? I’m a caregiver, author, lawyer, teacher, and former professional organizer. I wrote a book, Become an Informed Caregiver: What You Should Know When Caring for an Aging Loved One. It’s about the information caregivers need, and it will be available on Amazon in October 2016.
