Caregiver Media Notes

As I travel the nation hosting the Fearless Caregiver Conferences over the past 21 years, I have learned about so many terrific campaigns designed to support family caregivers. I look forward to sharing the work of these caregiving advocates in this column on a regular basis:

  • Take a look at the special focus in the USATODAY this week on family caregiving. Proud to be asked to be part of the effort.
  • My good friend Chris McMillen, also known as "The Bow Tie Guy," who like so many of us, started his mission to support family caregivers as a caregiver himself. Chris has created a life to love after caregiving ends through writing, radio advocacy and now coming this month with TLO Travel and Tours, where Caregivers Travel!  I look forward to joining him and his group on trips to some really wonderful places!
  • Twenty-one years ago when we started our mission to support family caregivers, we were one of the very few voices in the wilderness yelling,” The caregivers are coming. The caregivers are coming.”  One of the voices who has been with us from the start has been Denise Brown, a caregiver advocate and good friend and ally. I am excited about joining her at her upcoming National Caregiver Conference in Chicago early next month. 
  • Dr. Connie Siskowski has always been another advocate, friend and ally since we started so many year ago.  Connie is a CNN HERO for her work with caregiving youth and the September/October Today’s Caregiver magazine cover interview.
