What if there was an innovative, resourceful training program in North Texas to help manage the impact of caregiving in your life (free of charge)?

CareGiver Transitions' mission is to provide meaningful, practical, and self-compassionate tools that empower people who care for a family member due to aging, chronic disease, or differences in ability.
Welcome to CareGiver Transitions. It’s an honor to be a part of an incredible caregiver and senior care community!
Most of us don't start out calling ourselves "family caregivers". We often begin by "just helping out", and before we know it, we're overwhelmed by unanticipated challenges.
Meaningful support and purposeful navigation tools make an amazing difference.
Most resources available for caregivers are centered around providing care for our care recipient. Equally important are tools and resources to navigate the impact of caregiving in our own life.
CareGiver Transitions provides meaningful tools for caregivers to choose their next steps with purpose and greater clarity. Each consultation and training program acknowledges the realities of caregiving as a uniquely difficult experience.
As caregivers, we make decisions that are the best possible decision for both ourselves and our care recipient in any given moment. CareGiver Transitions helps caregivers, senior care professionals, and others concerned with the impact of caregiving to identify opportunities and gain practical insight into a caregiving experience.
We look forward to helping you find what works for you today!
What does it mean to be a caregiver?
Whether you care for an aging relative, someone with chronic physical or cognitive disease, or someone with differences in ability, you are a caregiver.
You may be the only one or one of several providing care. You could live locally to your care recipient or long distance.
Perhaps you're just beginning to realize a family member or friend needs more help.
You may be overwhelmed with the tasks and responsibilities of caregiving, and yet it seems like no one notices you're drowning.
Or maybe your caregiving journey is now over, and you're feeling shell shocked and uncertain about how to move forward.
No matter where you are, you have a story, and choices to make.
We spend so much time focusing on our care recipient (as it should be). As the experience intensifies, it's no wonder our own needs get lost along the way.
What’s the best next step for you?
No one knows better than you do. My role is to help family caregivers find what works for them, based on circumstances, values, and what's most important to them as an individual and caregiver.
No matter where you are, you deserve care too.
