I listen, recommend and give you tools to thrive and enjoy your loved one.

I used my Masters in Life Transitions to help elders with the later life issues, but it became very real when I unexpectedly became a caregiver every 6 months to my 87 year old mother for 5 years, 2 years later I became a caregiver to my terminal husband. I had trusted colleagues that were able to listen and not judge my feelings of fear, exhaustion, and frustration. With over 20 years experience consulting with caregivers, I'm here to share with you not only from textbook and training, but with personal experience to help you thrive.

“Donna has worked for me for several years. I live in Tennessee and she oversees my brother in California. I call her my "Super Woman". Because she is! I can always count on Donna! She has never let me down! Truly a blessing!”

Nancy Mirrasoul

“My attorney suggested Donna to help with medical/emotional health issues. She kept all, medical/emotional issues under control. She was always compassionate, but knew how to get tough when my (incredibly stubborn) friend starting to debate merits of care. ”


“Donna has been so helpful with some of my clients who no longer have family members close by. I handle the finances, the estate attorney handles the legal, and she handles the rest.”
