  • A little about Lori Ramos Cavallo, founder of,

    I was a caregiver to my mother, a stroke survivor and father a dialysis patient during the final eight years of their lives. I had no idea the impact this would have on my life. My journey took me in many directions and I discovered that most of us go into caring for our loved ones with little or no idea what is involved.
    As a caregiver I struggled with stress and depression and turned to Kathleen Adams, Director of the Center for Journal Therapy. She taught me techniques to use my journal as a form of self therapy. By doing so I found I was better able to manage the immense challenges of caregiving. I became a certified Journal to the Self® Instructor and offer classes on this site as well as in person and speak to support groups on the importance and responsibility of self-care while caring for a loved one.
    I hope you find my website helpful and I wish you many blessings on your caregiving journey.
