Daughter Off Duty

New Website for Family Caregivers!

Let’s build a community of caregivers! I launched my new website this week! I’m so excited, and humbled, to step back into the world of amazing and brave people who are caring for a family member. Resources, encouragement, recipes, and stories will be added to the site regularly. I hope you will find it supportive and educational, as well as a place to voice whatever you are feeling, without judgement. There is an opportunity for you to share your stories (current or in the past if you are a caregiver survivor), to ask questions of the community, and offer tips and tools of your own.

Along with resources for caregivers, you can follow my path to publication (in October) of my memoir about accompanying my mother in her last years—and, with your subscription, enjoy the first two chapters. There’s also a blog about life after caregiving (yes, it does come), and what I have learned in retrospect that was impossible to see during the six years of battling with my mother and being physically and emotionally exhausted.

About once a month subscribers will receive an email with a small story and links to new content on the website. You can choose what you want to read or just go explore.

I hope you will join me on the page, and pick up where we left off on Daughter on Duty!

(P.S. I will never share your information and you can unsubscribe any time if it’s not what you need.)

  1. I can only imagine the overwhelming effort, patience and love it takes to do what you have done in giving care to your mother…and then relive it all more deeply than life as you write and publish it! If we empathize with you, perhaps we can develop the compassion in ourselves and pass it on to others in our lives. Thank you so very much, G!
    I look forward to experiencing your book!

    1. Thank you. Truly it has been healing to relive it. A lot of insight comes in the rearview mirror. Insight that probably would not have been useful at the time, even had I recognized it. I do hope I am able to make use of it when I am in need of a caregiver. But who knows. It didn’t help my mother, knowing what she knew after she cared for her own mother.
