Let me guess...you're here because...

…you have big plans. Your kids are grown and you’re ready to do what YOU want to do.

 

You want Freedom. Flexibility. To live Financially comfortably.

 

But your life just flipped upside down.

You know your elderly parent needs help, and you know you need to step up, but…

  • You don’t know what you don’t know about reversing roles.
  • You’re trying to decide whether it would be best for them to go to a nursing home, stay in their own home, or move in with you.  BIG decision.
  • You don’t want to neglect your own family. 
 
If any of that sounds like you, you’re in the right place! My name is Donna Harris, and I help adult children like you navigate thru this maze of caregiving.  I’m here for you!!

I know what it's like to...

  • want to be free to travel
  • want to be free to watch the programs you want to watch
  • want your children to be free from criticism
  • be questioned about your every move
  • want to have my own friends over
  • want to have your own friends over
  • want to feel free to have a lazy day

It's not your fault!

You were raised and taught how to care for a family. From your babies thru the teenage years.

 

You help your children learn to go forward and become independent adults.

 

Then over time you see a loved one who needs help and they’re going totally in the opposite direction than they should.

 

You need to do something!

 

Once independent… now DEPENDENT.  On you!

 

Your parent use to put you to bed but the tables have turned and you’re now putting them to bed.  

 

You live your life not thinking one day it will flip. You never gave it a thought you’d be managing someone else’s life.

 

You weren’t prepared for this huge change in direction where out of the blue you have to start making choices and decisions for a loved one.

 

To be brutally honest with you, there will be many days when you think you can’t do this for another second, much less days, months or years.  There will be days when you fall apart. 

 

Role reversal is serious and becomes more daunting than either of us could have ever imagined.

 

It’s not your fault you weren’t prepared.

 

That’s why I decided to begin this journey and be an advocate for adult children like you, when reversing the roles. 

 

I’ve been taking care of my 102 year old mother over 20 years now.  AND I’m still in the trenches.

 

You’re a mighty warrior! 

 

All family caregivers are warriors!  If I can help just one family, it’s all worth it to me to put the time into this site.

 

You can do this! You don’t have to do this alone.

 

 

reasons to appreciate your aging parent

When a loved one's Estate is at risk!

Having a little family time.

I sacrificed my family time.  I lose many precious moments with my grandchildren while caring for mom that I’ll never get back with them. 

 

I’ve given up my privacy.  Things aren’t the same as they were before.

 

You ask…What’s that got to do with me?

 

After learning about the Estate Recovery Program, I quickly started my search. 

 

Medicaid was going to take mom’s house after she passed away for reimbursement of the assistance she received from an agency. Now, if that happens, it leaves me sitting on the curb.

 

What would happen to you? Have you even thought about it?

 

Many long hours and phone calls and becoming exhausted, I finally got the answers I was looking for.

 

NOW, I want to help you help your family and yourself.

 

If you're anything like me, you want...
