carolDuring a recent search for positive moments during a loved one’s nursing home journey, Carol missed many opportunities to create joy—unknowingly and unwillingly. She knew there were occasions to create joy, to be a “sunspot.” However, due to a lack of suitable resources, she felt alone in her search for shaping positive moments.

As a result, she is now committed to helping others make the most of long-term care situations and discover joy in the process.

Carol is a Registered Nurse with a Master Degree and Graduate Gerontology Certification. Having worked and studied in long-term care settings and personally experienced nursing home life as a supportgiver, Carol offers assistance to other supportgivers through her guides & talks.
