WHAT IS DAUGHTERHOOD?
Daughterhood.org’s mission is to support and build confidence in women who are managing their parents’ care. The daughterhood blog, website and social media links connect you — the care manager — to resources and a wholly unique perspective on our health and elder care systems. Through her writing and curation of resources, daughterhood’s founder, Anne Tumlinson, coaches women and men to insist on excellent care and a meaningful experience for their parents.
Daughterhood is what happens when we put our lives on hold to take care of our parents. Unlike motherhood, we don’t expect daughterhood. And, even if we did, it’s shocking how hard and time consuming it is.
- Compared to motherhood, daughterhood makes you feel much more alone. You don’t have a neighborhood full of other women taking care of parents just like you.
Let’s work together to make daughterhood easier for each other.
Get in touch with Anne, the founder of daughterhood, to share your story and ask questions about your parent’s care.
Read and comment on Anne’s blog. Share your own experiences and challenges in caring for your aging parents.
