What is Brave Caregiving?

Brave Caregiving is imperfect and funny and irreverent.

It means caring for yourself just as much as you care for others.

It means facing your own shit and owning it.

It means never having all the answers.

It means listening to others when you feel like you know better.

It means doing things differently sometimes.

It means not giving in to the voice that’s telling you you’re failing.

It means being scared and doing it anyway.

It means loving hard and doing hard things.

I am a brave caregiver. Will you be brave and join me?


I beg you take courage;
the brave soul
can mend even disaster
