As caregivers, we are often reminded of the importance of being an advocate for our care partners, asking questions, understanding the situation and being their voice.
Today, my guest is Phyllis Ivey, a social worker, consultant and life coach with over 30 years of experience in the mental health field, and a lifelong advocate for her parents.

Phyllis also shares the importance of caring for yourself as an advocate. And as a caregiver.
