Daughterhood San Diego
In September 2015, two San Diego senior care experts joined forces to bring a cherished concept to life. Christine Lee (Casa Companion Homecare Solutions) and Karen Van Dyke (Senior Care By Design) were already serving San Diego’s seniors, their families and their caregivers when they decided they wanted to do more. They discovered Daughterhood.org, the brainchild of Anne Tumlinson, a Washington D.C.-based author, consultant, and aging expert. Anne’s experience with aging in the public, private and personal sectors inspired her to create a national resource to help families care for loved ones. With Anne’s support and blessing, Christine and Karen launched Daughterhood’s first local Circle. Now in its sixth year, the Daughterhood San Diego circle has which has been sustaining and strengthening San Diego caregivers ever since. Daughterhood San Diego’s monthly meetings are a blend of community support and resource sharing.
Anne Tumlinson, founder of Daughterhood, has spent the last two decades working on improving how America cares for its frailest, most vulnerable older adults. She lives in Washington, D.C. with her husband two children and canine consultant, Sofie.
Founded in early 2015, Daughterhood’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 care managers 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.
