Upcoming Broadcasts

Often well-intentioned parents attempt to shield their children from the uncomfortable face of illness. Understand how one mom incorporated her school age children in the care of her parent with Alzheimer's from diagnosis till death. Hear how, by seeing Alzheimer's first hand, Colleen Kavanaugh's children were less afraid of an almost incomprehensible disease and how they gained a compassionate maturity that has broadened their understanding of the world and all people around them. Learn simple activities children can do with their grandparent and how to keep communication open so both you and your child can express the changing thoughts and fears you both will experience along the way. About Colleen Colleen, a Certified Caregiving Consultant, brings her decade of family caregiving experience and training to empower and uplift family caregivers step-by-step. While caring for her mother with cancer and father with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, working and raising a family, she could never imagine seeing the other side of life after caregiving. Her feeling of isolation and the lack of understanding from others who were not in her situation have called her to help current caregivers from feeling the same things. Colleen works with clients to create proactive strategies that encourage thriving within the demanding caregiving role.
