Dear Friends,

I have spent my career 25+ years— working to improve how America delivers care for our oldest and frailest adults. I’ve worked in government, done policy research, and worked with hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living providers and home care companies.

But I’ve learned that nothing prepares you for the experience of caring for another person, not even being an expert on the topic.

The problems we all face – lack of information and tools, poor delivery of care, confusing options, and just normal grief about shifting roles – inspired me to create a website and connect with others for information and support.

That’s how the Daughterhood community began in 2015.

 

And since then, our community has flourished. We now have more than 25 Daughterhood Circles across the country who meet in-person and online. We host the Daughterhood podcast and a conversational video series with experts.

In case you are wondering, I grew up in Gainesville, FL, went to school in South Carolina and Boston, and now live in Washington, DC with my husband, Erik. I have two children who are much more awesome than I deserve: a 21-year-old daughter, Grace, and an 18-year-old son, Jake. We live with an aging corgi/beagle rescue, Sofie, who makes us smile every day.

I look forward to working with you. Our terrific team supports me as I support you. Please connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, subscribe to our newsletter and the Daughterhood Podcast so we can connect with you regularly.

Thanks so much,
anne-sig
