Chicago native Denise M. Brown founded CareGiving.com at a time when Google, Twitter, Facebook and Wikipedia didn’t even exist. Everyone told Denise she was wasting her time. No one would be interested in a website like CareGiving.com. She launched the site anyway and now, over twenty years later, CareGiving.com is the go-to destination for millions of family caregivers desperate for practical advice and encouragement. Jana talks with Denise about her early influences, how she manages her own parents and the two-day, National Institutes of Health event that shocked Denise into the realization that caregivers are invisible even the medical community. Note: this episode originally aired November 2, 2017. It has been lightly edited.
