FirstLight Home Care is proud to welcome guest blogger Joni Aldrich to the family! Joni will share her insight and expertise on caregiving with a blog post on the 15th of each month. Understanding first-hand the challenges, anguish, and even rewards that are associated with caring for loved ones, Joni will offer advice and suggestions and share her own trials and tribulations. It was her extensive care for her late husband, mother, and now her boyfriend that inspired Joni to share her knowledge and support with fellow caregivers as well as current cancer fighters. With her, you will always have a friend to make sense of the medical jargon, a mentor to keep you updated on current medical research, and an ally within the cancer community. Joni wants others to understand that they are not alone.
Joni has established a strong following as an author of several influential books ranging in topics from her personal story as a caregiver in her book “The Saving of Gordon: Lifelines to W-I-N Against Cancer,” to guidance on creating lasting connections with your own loved ones in journals such as “Our Daily Connection.” She also offers helpful guides to aid in the process of recovery, such as a workbook to document doctor’s visits and a journal to reflect on the process.
Joni also spreads her knowledge and support as a national inspirational speaker on topics such as “Living to Give: What it Takes to be a Caregiver,” and “How to W-I-N Against Cancer: Finding the Right Treatment Facility and Oncologist.”
FirstLight Home Care is excited about the partnership with Joni Aldrich and looks forward to her positive contributions in care giving and inspirational voice.
