Holly Robinson Peete is an actress, author, TV host, philanthropist and passionate advocate with an inspiring story for family caregivers. As a young woman she cared for a father with Parkinson's disease and simultaneously cared for a son with autism – she is the ultimate Sandwich Generation caregiver.
Sherri Snelling, a national caregiving expert and author of A Cast of Caregivers - Celebrity Stories to Help You Prepare to Care, has profiled Holly and other celebrity caregivers about their journeys: the challenges, the guilt, the stress, the silver linings, the support, the love, finding Me Time and finding grace.
In this Webinar, Sherri will ask Holly about the challenges and differences in caring for a parent versus caring for a special needs child (now a teenager). They’ll discuss juggling caregiving and work, facing hurdles with family, friends, health care professionals and a society not addressing a caregiver's needs and how to balance caring for you while caring for others.
Holly will also tell us why the lack of good information and support resulted in her founding the HollyRod Foundation with her husband, NFL's Rodney Peete.
