All Home Care Matters was honored to welcome Denise Brown for an in-depth interview about caregiving and to learn about how she is helping to support family caregivers.
Denise launched The Caregiving Years Training Academy in April 2020 after selling CareGiving.com, an online community she launched in 1996 to Ohio’s Hospice. Through its blogs posts, podcasts and video chats, CareGiving.com held one of the largest online libraries of caregiving stories at the time of its sale. In addition to creating training program and support services for family caregivers, Denise helps her parents.
Denise began caring for her parents in 2004 after her father’s bladder cancer diagnosis. Her parents, now 90 and 87, live near Denise in their own apartment. In a video created for the American Cancer Society, Denise shared her own personal caregiving story.
A recent online story in The Wall Street Journal also included Denise’s caregiving experiences. Next Avenue named Denise a 2017 Influencer in Aging, one of “50 advocates, researchers, thought leaders, innovators, writers and experts who continue to push beyond traditional boundaries and change our understanding of what it means to grow older.”
