About Denise M. Brown, Executive Director, The Center for Family Caregivers
Denise began working with family caregivers in 1990, debuting Caregiving.com in 1996 and The Center for Family Caregivers in 2000. Denise is the author of The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey and Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers. You can view, and purchase, her books at our Bookstore.
Caregiving.com features the blogs of family caregivers, weekly words of comforts, free webinars and online support groups. Visitors also can join the site’s Caregiving Happiness Project, which looks to determine if small, daily changes can add happiness during a difficult time in life. A campaign featuring the stories of former family caregivers called You’ll Be Okay debuted on the site in November 2010.
Caregiving.com also holds online events that entertain, encourage and provide an opportunity for a virtual escape. We regularly take breaks–for fall, winter, spring and summer. During our breaks, we take time to reflect on what’s going well in your caregiving role and what needs tweaking. In December, we sponsor a Holiday Progressive Blog Party.
You also can listen to Your Caregiving Journey, our Internet talk show, which delves into discussions about your caregiving role.
In 2010, Denise launched Caregiving Deals, which features deals on products and services. In 2011, she launched SharingStore.com, a classified site for caregiving supplies and equipment, and AfterGiving.com, which helps after caregiving ends.
