Are you one of the 44.5 million Americans taking care of a loved one?

 If so, you know caregiving is filled with joys and challenges.

You want to be the best caregiver
for your Loved One that you can be,

But sometimes you’re not sure of

  • What to do

  • Where to start

  • Who to ask

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed, isolated and confused.    

I’ve taken care of a Loved One,   
and know the joys and challenges you face.

My situation

For nine years I took care of my mother on a journey that included hospitalization, home health care, private caregivers, palliative care, and hospice care.  During that time, her living situation shifted from her own home to a rehab center, to my home, to assisted living and an inpatient hospice facility.

A caregiver fills many roles

Not only was I my mother’s daughter, but I also acted as her Proxy for Health Care, her Agent for Durable Power of Attorney, and the Trustee of her Revocable Trust.

And on a day-to-day basis, I was her medication manager, her appointment scheduler, her intermediary with physicians and other care providers, her chauffeur, and her cheerleader.

My caregiving journey ended two years ago

And with the passage of time, I’ve recognized the additional resources and services that would have made the journey easier for both myself and my mother.

That’s why I created the 
The Caregivers Site 

to provide people caring for a loved one with information, support, and services

to ease the caregiving journey.

I’m Michelle O’Reardon…

a coach, counselor, and educator.  I support family caregivers to become the caregivers that they want to be.

I was the caregiver for my own Loved One for nine years so have walked the caregiving journey.

I’m dedicated to using my knowledge and skills to ease the journey for other caregivers.  

During the month of October,

I’m sharing three of my most requested support materials at no charge:

The 3 Essentials for Family Caregivers

is not a ‘how to’ for Activities of Daily Living,
it’s not a guide to home health care services.

It is a resource for you as a caregiver…

…to give you information you need to care for yourself
as well as your Loved One.

Taking care of your loved one 

could be the hardest thing you’ve ever done.

On a day-to-day basis, it’s easy to feel

  • overwhelmed
  • confused
  • unappreciated
  • isolated

I’ve walked this walk, 
I’ve been in your shoes. 

And I’m here to reassure you that you don’t have to travel this journey alone
