My Story

My name is Krisie Barron LSW and I am a Caregiver Specialist.  I have over twenty years of experience helping individuals and families walk their aging journey.  I have found that the best gift we can give each other is our gift of experience. Through my education, experience with clients and my own personal experience as a Caregiver, I bring a unique, all encompassing view of caregiving and understand the trials and tribulations that come with the caregiving journey. 

Caregiver support and education is my specialty. I have a passion for helping Caregivers and the people they support.  The journey can be difficult, frustrating and lonely.  With the right tools and support Caregivers can thrive instead of just survive. My unique personality and style of teaching engages audience members and gives them  tangible tools to walk away with.

I am a Licensed Social Worker and am a Certified Caregiver Consultant who provides training and  support to Professional and Family Caregivers. I have an extensive background in Nursing Home Care, Home and Community Based Services, Homecare and Hospice. 

Our Journey

As a Social Worker I have walked with people through life's journey.  Together we've navigated and manage illness, family situations, and caregiving hurdles.  I read all the books and attended all the workshops.  I thought I knew what people were going through and how to support them, but there were so many things I could not have known.

 

This journey has given me a unique perspective and enables me to be able to take my experiences as a Care Partner and Social Worker and use them to educate both professionals and families to gain a new perspective, an understanding of the emotions we all experience and how to better support ourselves and each other along the way. 

When life takes a turn and leaves your life upside down, you want to know who is responsible, how can we fix it and you continuously ask yourself...Why is this happening to us, this is not the way it was supposed to be...?

We believe we were meant to share this story and experiences so we can help others enhance and share their stories.

My Philosophy

When we know better we do better...

Healthy expectations lead to healthy boundaries...

All you can do is the next right thing...

We are all just trying to figure it out...
