Conscious Caring Resources with

Claire Webster of Caregiver Crosswalk

Today we had a wonderfully honest conversation with Claire Webster the founder of Caregiver Crosswalk. She talked of her feelings of being overwhelmed trying for her mother with dementia and trying to be “Super Woman,” to the world which eventually lead to a nervous breakdown.  Claire shares her thoughts on caring, her families reaction to dementia and the changes in herself and how she has come out the other side stronger than ever and is now helping other families cope and walk through the maze of dementia.
