Hi, I’m Liz and I believe caregiving should be a team sport. But too often caregivers go it alone unable to find the resources and support they need and want. So I have assembled a team just for you.
Welcome to Working Daughter, a community for women balancing eldercare, career, kids and life.
Are you struggling to care for an elderly parent or relative, hold down a job, and raise a family? Have you been searching for real world, practical answers on how to work with siblings, balance your time and have difficult conversations with your parents? Do you just need to be with people who understand? You’ve come to the right place. Read this.
Several years ago both of my parents were diagnosed with terminal illnesses – on the same day! I struggled to do all that needed to be done for them all the while trying to be a mother to my children, partner to my husband, and stay employed! I consumed more white wine and Twizzlers than I care to admit and I thought I would lose my career, my marriage, and my sanity.
But I didn’t! I am still standing. And you will be too. With planning and support, we can not only survive the caregiving years – we can thrive in our many roles.
Welcome to the sisterhood!
