Meet a Trainer: Denise M. Brown

Denise M. Brown sold CareGiving.com in March 2020 after managing the site’s content, technology and special events for 24 years. CareGiving.com was the first website to add online caregiving support groups, daily caregiving chats and blogs written by family caregivers. Through its blogs posts, podcasts and video chats, CareGiving.com holds one of the largest online libraries of caregiving stories.

Next Avenue named Denise a 2017 Influencer in Aging, one of "50 advocates, researchers, thought leaders, innovators, writers and experts who continue to push beyond traditional boundaries and change our understanding of what it means to grow older."

Denise launched the Caregiving Consultant Training™ program in 2016 to create opportunities for former family caregivers to share their wisdom, knowledge basis and encouragement with current family caregivers.
