Jill has worked in several arenas in her career and is a proponent of making sure the caregiver has support and is equipped to handle that role. She appreciates the opportunity Living at Home has given her to engage with and support our elders who are in a caregiving role. She facilitates monthly caregiver discussion groups, outreaches caregivers offering one-on-one coaching sessions and provides assistance with finding the appropriate resources for supporting both the caregiver and the care receiver.
