I can help you identify and set up technology to communicate with your care-recipient if you are remote. I'd be happy to chat and help you find the right device.

Caregiving is incredibly honorable and selfless. Many caregivers are also working full-time jobs and juggling other responsibilities. The needs of a caregiver can be a lot for one to manage which brings stress, exhaustion, and worry ultimately affecting their own physical and mental well-being. I stand in appreciation and support for caregivers and would like to help caregivers who need a listening ear or sounding board to improve their own well-being.

Hi everyone! My name is Rebekah and I work in a skilled-care nursing facility in central Georgia and have spent the last 9+ years helping residents with their individual needs. Support is such an important part of the process and I would love to offer any assistance that you may need. Please reach out if you have any questions or if you simply want someone to speak to and I would be more than happy to help! Take care, Rebekah K.

My entire career has been serving older adults in many areas. I am a licensed nursing home administrator and assisted living administrator and have managed both for-profit and non-profit communities across the country. Probably the way I might best contribute is to answer questions if anyone is searching for a nursing home, assisted living or other type of housing. I cannot imagine how difficult it must be to care for a loved one 24/7. God bless.
