Strategies for Family Caregivers
Join Breeda in identifying creative solutions to the everyday challenges of caregiving. Through light-hearted stories, actionable ideas, and experience, Breeda will inspire you to take action, commit to improved self-care and tackle serious issues.
About the Speaker:
Breeda Miller describes herself as “an accidental caregiver” for her mother with no training or medical background. During the eight years her mother lived with her and her family, Breeda learned more about life than she could ever have imagined. Now she shares those life lessons with others in the “Sandwich Generation” who need help navigating the challenges of caregiving and hospice care.
As an author, speaker and trainer, Breeda has used her professional experience serving health care organizations, corporations, nonprofit communities and academic institutions such as Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, The University of Michigan, Kimberly Clark, The Alzheimer’s Association and Leading Age.
She is a graduate of the University of Detroit Mercy with a degree in communications studies. Her stories have been broadcast nationally on The Moth Story Hour on NPR. A professional member of the National Speakers Association, she is also the immediate past president of the NSA Michigan Chapter. Through the power of story, audience interaction and warm-hearted humor, Breeda delivers strategies that make a difference.
