Brent is the founder of Grandpa’s Dream, a program that provides vital information for the care and welfare of sick and disabled people and supports the mental, physical, and emotional well-being of caregivers. Brent is a nationally acclaimed author, speaker and caregiver advocate, and she has dedicated her life to preparing the elderly and their caregivers to face end-of-life issues. She is the founder of Caregiver Story, a nonprofit organization that provides free medical and legal resources to the public through a powerful website that attracts up to over one hundred thousand visitors monthly. She is also a former member of the board of directors of Alzheimer’s Services of the East Bay, an organization serving families in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. Carolyn Brent travels throughout the United States, lecturing about the importance of adult siblings and their parents having what she calls “crucial conversations” in preparation for the end-of-life issues they may face. One of her special skills is helping families avoid being torn apart and helping families come together as a much stronger family unit. As a result of her work, families have the opportunity to create the type of supportive, loving environment their parents need in order to depart this world with dignity. About The Author : Carolyn passion was ignited when she was caring for her own father, who was diagnosed with dementia in 1997. From that experience, she found that neither she nor her family truly understood the medical challenges related to aging and chronic illness, or the financial and emotional weight of these issues on the family. In 2009 she founded her organization, Caregivers Story, which works to disseminate information through books, speaking engagements and a web-based info portal, to empower families who are being challenged by the need to plan for their aging parents’ medical, financial and legal well-being, as well as dealing with their own heartaches and intra-family
