Denise

Patient Leader

In 1996, Denise launched CareGiving.com, the first website to add online caregiving support groups, daily caregiving chats and blogs written by family caregivers. Through its blogs posts, podcasts and video chats, CareGiving.com holds one of the largest online libraries of caregiving stories. Denise organizes a weekly Twitter chat every Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET (#carechat) for those who care for a family member. In March 2011, Denise launched CareGifters, which helps family caregivers in need. In January 2016, she launched the Certified Caregiving Consultant training program which helps turn a personal caregiving experience into a profession. Denise currently helps her parents.
