Are you one of 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 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 own experience

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…

educator, guide, coach, and cheerleader for people taking care of a Loved One.  

I took care of my own Loved One for nine years so I’ve traveled the caregiving path.

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


 To celebrate the new year,

I’ve created a special offer 

for you and other caregivers
