I specialize in giving caregivers permission to take care of themselves and to show them how to do it. As a home-visiting registered nurse case manager, I have empowered homebound clients and their families to cope. My B.S. degree in health care administration and thirty years in the health-care profession developed my specialized skills, experience, and empathy to write "Hugs for Caregivers".
I have worked with families in cardiac rehab, open heart recovery,
intensive care, nursing home administration, home care, Parish nursing and diabetes
education. I was a long distance caregiver to my father and my sister. I enjoy my harp and
my shade garden and thank God for my husband , six children and seven grandchildren.
As an ElderCare Online Mentor, I will be answering your e-mailed questions to Casey and occasionally responding to postings in the ElderCare Forum message board.
