The Cheerful Caregiver

Taking care of YOU while taking care of a loved one


About The Cheerful Caregiver
  • As a family caregiver myself, I know how easy it is to let your own needs slide to the bottom of the priority list. My mission is to help you (and me!) push our own needs back up to the top -- without feeling guilty for doing so. And in the process, we'll all become much more cheerful caregivers. In these blog posts, you'll find inspiration, exasperation, practical wisdom, humor, and stuff to make your caregiving life easier. Won't you join me? I'm Elizabeth Hanes, caregiver to my mom, Registered Nurse, and award-winning journalist. Let's make this journey together!
