People inside (and outside) your church want to honor and care for their older loved ones. But they're struggling.

Now there's a way to help.

 

What others are saying:

Julie Pratt, MS, LCPC

Centrepoint Counseling, Inc.

"Isabel's voice echoed in my mind as I realized that, we as a human race very much avoid but so very much need help to navigate the aging stage of life. I feel equipped and even excited to be PRESENT for my aging loved ones and to help others do the same."

Adult child

"Thank you for your video training which prompted me to realize I've been treating my aging parents like projects rather than people. Talk about piercing my heart and convicting me! Just want to let you know I'm loving your training materials."

Pastor Colin Seager

Derwood Bible Church

"This is so good. I watched the first unit tonight and am resisting the temptation to watch it all the way through only to feel like I'm drinking from a fire hydrant
 
Isabel does a fantastic job of weaving personal experience (brings us in), research and specific ideas, warm engagement, positive reinforcement, and conveying a sense of urgency/importance to not wait until it's too late to establish the underlying relationship with our aging parents. 
 
This is a fantastic expression of the faith God commends, in line with caring for widows and orphans. It's an aspect sorely missing in the fabric of Western culture. I've found it's hit or miss - some do it well, others strike out. This is so helpful and edifying for people to engage."
I'm interested. What's next?

About the Creator of Prepare to Care:

I'm Isabel! I teach adult children + grandchildren how to care for their older loved ones respectfully and with dignity so they will have less stress, less family drama, and trauma in the long run.

Here are 5 things you should know about me:

  • I'm the author of The Value of Wrinkles: A Young Perspective on How Loving the Old Will Change Your Life. I speak, podcast, and basically do whatever it takes to help people value the older generation more!
  • I grew up in a multigenerational household with my Mama and Yeye (paternal grandparents in Cantonese). They took care of me when I was younger and I was blessed beyond measure to take part in caring for them until the passed at 98 and 102.  
  • Professionally, I've worked at Erickson Senior Living and Montgomery Hospice. Both experiences allowed me to love my elders more. I am so grateful to have learned from some of the most skilled and compassionate professionals.  
  • I am a PK (pastor's kid) and was blessed to have a dad who humbly loved his parents. His love for God and his family inspires me as I create, write, and speak.
  • I am an ABC (an American-born Chinese) and over the years have come to appreciate my heritage so much more (I also wish I paid more attention at Chinese school!).  
  • I am a wife, a mom of three young kids, and I am always learning and growing.
