Meet Becky Feola author of The Eldercare Consultant, Your Guide to Making the Best Choices Possible
Becky will share the story of her late husband who had Huntington’s Disease (a degenerative brain disease) and how she cared for him for 11 years until his death at the young age of 49. This journey as a caregiver led her to start 2 eldercare businesses (one a non-profit and the other for profit) along with writing The Eldercare Consultant. With over ten years of experience and working with over 1,000 families, Becky has seen so many mistakes and successes families make and have when caring for an aging loved one.
One of the reasons Becky has been so successful and loved by her clients is that she has walked in her shoes. She is a safe person for them to talk to and confess what they consider to be their dark secrets filled with guilt, fear and anger — only to discover they aren’t alone with these secrets and that Becky has also carried the same weight.
Her work has given guidance and hope to so many who have a long journey ahead of them.

Their behaviors stem from a variety of changes in their lives. Put yourself in their shoes, the loss of a spouse, friend's passing, failure completely drive, handling the changes in their health, encountering the need for help or the failure of their overall independence.
