Shelley Webb

Bio

"One person caring about another represents life's greatest value." Jim Rohn Shelley Webb is an author, speaker and Geriatric Care Manager. She has been a Registered Nurse for over 30 years with experience in the fields of neonatal intensive care, dialysis and care management. When her father came to live with her in 2005, the advantages of her medical experience became clear. Due to his dementia and congestive heart failure, her father was not able to care for himself alone any longer and so she took over these duties. Having experienced the helplessness, frustration, overwhelm and even loneliness that caregiving can bring, Shelley became passionate about offering encouragement, education and emotional support to all caregivers of aging parents and loved ones. Shelley is founder and director of http://IntentionalCaregiver.com, The Intentional Caregiver.
