Confidently Navigate Transition In Your Caregiving Journey with Sue Ryan, Author & Founder
Having been a non-professional caregiver for family and loved ones for more than thirty-five years, Sue Ryan created The Caregiver's Journey to walk caregivers through the various phases of their caregiving journey. How do we successfully manage all of the changes and transitions that happen when we step into the role of caregiver?
This week my guest is Sue Ryan, best-selling author of the book Our Journey of Love, 5 Steps to Navigate Your Caregiving Journey. For the past 35 years, she has been supporting entrepreneurs and business leaders successfully navigate transition. Sue's personal care for her loved ones brought her into the trenches of transition. When her caregiving journey began she frequently felt overwhelmed, frustrated, and faced with the unknown of not knowing what to do. Sue graciously shares with us all that she has learned and teaches family caregivers how to find balance and successfully navigate the many roles we carry as caregivers. This can be an empowering time for us when we realize we can re-create who we are and be encouraged in our transitions. When we understand ourselves- we can care well for others. Thank you, Sue!

In parallel with her professional career, she's been navigating roles of non-professional caregiving support for family and loved ones. When her first caregiving experience began, she frequently felt overwhelmed, frustrated, and yes – sometimes frightened. She felt like she was on an emotional roller coaster – often blindfolded. She didn’t know what to do, how to do it, or where to get help. She's learned a lot! Sue now navigates her caregiving journey positively, practicing massive acceptance and radical presence. Sue now feels supported and balanced throughout all the transitions in her caregiving journey and feels good about the journey she's creating for her loved one.
