Holly G.

Caregiver Coach | MSW | Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Asking for help is courageous, not weak.

My grandfather was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and only given 6 months to live, but he survived 3 more years. As his caregiver, it was hard to watch as the disease progressed. I was not prepared for the stress of being a caregiver. Today, I am a Social Worker supporting care for seniors (and their caregivers) living at home including those with Alzheimer’s. My top tip for caregivers is to remember “you can’t pour from an empty cup.” It can feel vulnerable to say you need help (or just need someone to listen). When you become a caregiver it is so easy to focus on others’ needs that you start to ignore your own....

Caregiver Coach | CNA | Med-Tech

This is a place where you can get relief and exhale with people who can relate.

I’ve been working as a caregiver for 20+ years including working as a CNA in nursing homes, assisted living, home health, hospitals, rehabilitation, Alzheimer's and dementia units, and hospice and supporting people living with MS, Parkinson’s, wound care, trach care, foley care, and feeding tubes. More and more, caregivers are responsible for managing complex care needs. Balancing these added responsibilities with your personal life can be stressful. I’ve learned that to be the best caregiver I can be, I must have empathy and compassion, both for myself and others!...
