About the author

Lise Leblanc has the experience and insight to make your caregiving journey a little lighter. As a registered psychotherapist, conflict resolution specialist and caregiver she has seen the impact that caregiving without personal care can wreak on all lives involved. Her personal lived experience has also shaped her useful perspectives. She was the main caregiver for her grandmother who had Alzheimer's disease when her grandfather died suddenly. Her own parents and siblings lived afar and she was working full time while raising her two young children. The experience has shaped her dedication to helping people take responsibility for the quality of their own lives at the same time as making space to support a conscious caregiving model.

Excerpt: Conscious Caregiving Guide: Caregiving Starts Here (by (author) Lise Leblanc)

Sometimes the greatest gift you can give a loved one is to show them that you are still able to enjoy your life to the fullest while caring for them. When your loved one sees you prioritizing your own health and your own needs, it may ease their mind and their guilt about being a burden on you. So many times we think we have to sacrifice ourselves for our loved ones, but what if we can continue living our lives to the fullest while still finding creative ways to meet their care needs?
