Move from feeling frustrated and overwhelmed to feeling positive and balanced in your caregiving journey.
Our virtual 6-week course teaches caregiving lessons, tips, and strategies. It includes exercises, discussion, role-playing and, for those of you who are interested, engagement in our online community. You’ll learn to have your most positive caregiving journey.
I’ve expanded the course to include one of the areas that helps you have your best relationship with yourself, and others, in roles of caregiving support – ‘The Journey Begins With You’.
In ‘The Journey Begins With You’, you’ll learn about yourself in a meaningful way including:
Evaluating and updating your beliefs so they support – not limit – you in your perspectives, responsibilities, and relationships.
Clarifying your greatest areas of potential and possibility, giving you permission to focus on roles of caregiving support you are most qualified for and inviting others in where they are more qualified.
Throughout the lessons in the course, you’ll take a deeper dive into learning to support your journey through this knowledge.
Famous author Anaïs Nin said:
“We don’t see the world as it is, we see it as we are”.
“I’ve had the pleasure of welcoming Sue to our community and speaking with our population on the topics of caregiving and navigating physical and cognitive changes. Sue speaks with authority, is non-judgmental, and compassionate to the experiences of others. Several of our residents approached me after Sue has spoken and told me how much they loved Sue and the message she brought to them.
As someone who is still walking the caregiving journey, Sue is a beacon of light for those who fear the uncertainty that dementia brings. The message she delivers is one filled with hope, support and love. Her book, Our Journey of Love: 5 Steps to Navigate your Caregiving Journey, describes her experience and is a wonderful resource. I recommend her very highly for any endeavor she chooses to undertake.”

In her January, 2020 Ezine, Coach, Author, CSP, and CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame member, Mikki Williams, featured her review of Our Journey of Love, 5 Steps to Navigate Your Caregiving Journey.
Her review began with a quote from my book:
“Massive acceptance awakens me to the potential of my experience. Radical presence gives me clarity in the fullness of my experience.”
Mikki’s review states: “That beautiful, inspiring, contemplative quote was created by my cherished friend, Sue Ryan, truly one of the kindest persons on this earth. To be in Sue’s presence is to be blessed and inspired by the generosity of her spirit and by the manner in which she chooses to live her life. She wrote this book in the spirit of sharing her love and her truth.
Although Sue’s journey is grounded in her experiences with her Dad and her husband and Alzheimer’s, it is a book for us all. I was the sole care giver to my Mom in her late years, who was joyfully blessed with a very sharp mind till her passing…, just a failing body. One of the most challenging times of my life, yet one of the most rewarding. For most of us, we are or will be or have been care givers and this book is a soulful journey into all the feelings and thoughts experienced at the varied stages of this role. I encourage EVERYONE to read this book, to be inspired and to give it as a gift to ANYONE. It is simply timeless!”
