Welcome to My Mother's Caregiver 

My Mother's Caregiver exists to provide emotional support to anyone whose role has changed from being "cared for" to "caring for" someone - be that your parent, spouse, friend or relative. Whether you live with the person you are caring for, live near by or you are a long-distance caregiver, worrying and managing from afar, this site has something for you.

My Mother's Caregiver also exists to provide tangible information, resources and answers, specifically for those affected by dementia and/or  looking for various elder care solutions in Ontario, Canada.

My Mother's Caregiver is operated by Sharon Osvald Communications in Brighton, Ontario, Canada.

Who is Sharon Osvald?

I am a wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, writer and worship leader. My biggest love is my family: My husband of 25+ years, my young adult son, married daughter, son-in-law, grand daughter, siblings, extended family and one very scruffy dog.

Having been a freelance writer since 1999, I've written for newspapers including The London Free Press, business and lifestyle magazines, The Mom & Caregiver, life stories, lifestyle reporting and individual businesses. I am a Christian, youth leader, former broadcaster (www.ucbcanada.com) and addictions counsellor (www.newlifegirlshome.com).

I have two great part time positions: the Worship Coordinator at Brighton Fellowship Church and a Lived Experience/Patient Engagement Advisor serving as Lived Experience Network Coordinator for Providence Care Behavioural Support Services and the Alzheimer Societies of S.E. Ontario. 

Although I often promote the Lived Experience Network project from this website, www.mymotherscaregiver.com is not officially associated with the South Eastern Ontario Lived Experience Network, the Lived online Experience Cafe or www.dementiacrossroads.ca. All comments and opinions expressed our my own.

I am so glad to walk alongside you in the journey.
