Meet Nicole Clagett

 

Nicole ClagettSpecializing in social work, and long-care I am the co-founder of Guiding Lights, a charity that supports caregivers who are providing care to adults, typically older adults with chronic conditions.

 

My perspective on what it is like to be both a professional and personal caregiver (having cared for my grandfather and a friend) serves as a constant reminder of why I get up every day to continue to do the work that I do to serve our community.

 

When not working I enjoy spending time with my children and fiancé on our family farm.

Caregivers

 

Caregivers Summit

 

Caring for a loved one can be challenging and, at times, overwhelming. Caregivers understand they have a job to do as a full-time member of their loved one’s care team. Caregiving can be shared among you, your family, your case manager, therapist or even your doctor.

 

The Caregivers Summit provides respite, resolution, and resources as you navigate life’s transitions.

 

There are multiple conferences available; choose the one – or ones – that best suit your location and/or calendar.
