Colleen Kavanaugh

Patient Leader

Becoming a family caregiver is rarely anyone’s dream job. For a decade I cared for my parents, a role I was not prepared for and denied having because I was also a mother, daughter, sister, partner, employee and active daydreamer. The physical and emotional demands of caring can seem endless and finding sympathetic support is often a challenge. I now work alongside caregivers across the country to empower them to love, prepare, and thrive. I am certified as a Caregiving Consultant, Dementia Practitioner, and Dementia Communications Specialist. I work with clients so they feel supported and capable in their role by offering a unique blend of straight-shooting practicality and spirituality.
