1. Caregiving Success Like a CEO: A True Story Phyllis Ayman, MS/SLP, CDP, CADDCT, CDCM, CMDCP 52:16

Like so many advocates, Nancy came to this space after caring for her parents in their advanced years. However, a family history steeped in loss from an early age prepared her than most. She was already well advised about knowing the important information, where to find said information and how to proceed in the difficult medical situations that arise.

But what she was not necessarily prepared for was discovering systemic missteps that unintentionally occurred as her parents aged. In the process she was able to save her parents over $200,000/year, unraveling financial, legal, medical and homecare fraud and abuse.

Nancy’s view of her role of family Caregiver is one worth hearing. She was able to apply the lessons she learned from her entrepreneurial father with her own corporate experience to approach the caregiving role like a CEO of a small business.

No doubt the caregiving experience takes its emotional and psychological toll. Adopting a CEO mindset can be helpful in organizing all that needs to be done and remaining calm amidst the myriad of medical care and logistic decisions that need to be made.

Nancy is not only an advocate but a role model for caregivers.
