About Joni Aldrich: Joni has been a caregiver on the front line with two terminal cancer patients–her husband and mother. That’s why caregiving is so important to her. Caregiving S.O.S. covers pertinent topics to help caregivers, who are usually not trained or prepared for the difficult role they undertake. She is the author of 6 books on surviving cancer, caregiving, brain illness and grief. For more information you can go to www.jonialdrich.com and http://www.linkedin.com/pub/joni-aldrich/14/a1a/9b

Joni’s other company is Basket of Care.com. This isn’t your ordinary gift basket. With her wonderful basket designer–Carol Taylor, a cancer survivor–she provides gift baskets that can be sent to those going through a life crisis with PRACTICAL gifts that they can use, such as pill organizers, blankets, flashlights to light the way, my books, thank you notes, slipper socks–the list goes on.

Have a kind and respectful day.

Empowering Caregivers Who are Facing Difficult Decisions

About the workshop:

Wouldn’t it be a relief to know you are making the right decisions and doing right by the person in your care? Whether you are caring for someone with a brain injury, dementia, mental illness, or other cognitive impairment, you can learn the framework and tools to use when making the difficult life, health and end-of-life decisions. This is not a one-size-fits-all solution but can be adapted depending on person’s level of incapacity and the situation. Respect and compassion are the core values of this decision making process.

Have a kind and respectful day.
