Determined to continue her husband Glen’s quest to educate the world about Alzheimer’s Disease, Kim Campbell made it her personal mission to improve the quality of life for people with dementia and their caregivers. In August of 2016, she launched CareLiving, a blog, lifestyle guide and social movement designed to inspire, encourage and empower caregivers to care for themselves while caring for others. The CareLiving website features articles from Kim and a host of guest writers, specialists, musicians, doctors and caregivers. Readers can follow Kim through her journey as a caregiver, learning from her challenges and triumphs as she progresses through the many stages of being an Alzheimer’s caregiver.
CareLiving is poised to become the go-to source of hope and progress for caregivers worldwide by raising awareness through social media, events, education, real-world actions and celebrity engagement.
I knew that there was a desperate need for a new voice (any voice!) for caregivers, but didn’t anticipate the outpouring of support that we’d received from fans, friends, medical professionals, ministries and others. Many caregivers feel that CareLiving.org is their voice – that we are not only speaking directly to them, but for them. – Kim Campbell
