My Journey Began
When my caregiving journeys
began more than 30 years ago,
I felt like I was on an emotional
roller coaster – often
blindfolded – and not knowing
what to expect next.
Searching for Answers
I began searching for answers and learning from others who, like me and perhaps like you, began our journeys wanting to create the best journey for our care receiver – while struggling without answers – and sometimes not even knowing the questions to ask.I’m now positive and balanced in my journey. Both my care receiver and I are living our best lives as we navigate our perfectly imperfect journeys of love together.I’m sharing with you what I have, and continue to, learn on my journey of love caregiving.My Daddy, my hero. He cared for me so perfectly – I
wanted to do the same for him when he needed care.

Tips and Strategies to Positively Navigate Your Caregiving Journey
The breadth and depth of my experiences, and my passion for everyone to have their best journey, led me to write Our Journey of Love, 5 Steps to Navigate Your Caregiving Journey.
My goal for writing Our Journey of Love is to positively impact your lives as caregivers and those of your care receivers on your journeys.
Practicing these steps helps you provide your care receiver with their most positive journey, while keeping you emotionally balanced, present, and positive in yours.
I am filled with gratitude that the caregiving community is finding these messages valuable. Through their recognition, Our Journey of Love, 5 Steps to Navigate Your Caregiving Journey has become an international best-selling book.
I’m enjoying recording the audio version of the book and excited that it will be available soon!

“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.”

We have known Sue for several years. Jack and Sue came at first just to find answers at the Alzheimer’s Support Network. They then began getting support from the various groups and our team.As Sue says: “I would not be where I am on our journey, and I don’t believe Jack would be in as great a place as he is on his journey, without all the love, support and guidance you so compassionately and knowledgeably share.”
Sue is now giving back to the community and on a one to one basis. She gives back because she’s walked the journey.
