“Elizabeth has an infectious passion to help others in their caregiving journey and we are thrilled she is bringing the important message of prioritizing personal health and wellbeing to family caregivers who too often put their own needs last.”
ATLANTA (PRWEB) November 29, 2017
In conjunction with November’s National Family Caregiver Month theme of “Caregiving around the Clock,” Elizabeth Miller, CEO and founder of Happy Healthy Caregiver, launched the Happy Healthy Caregiver podcast as part of the Whole Care Network.
“When I started assuming responsibilities to help care for my chronically ill parents, I was overwhelmed and felt really isolated. I knew my own health would suffer if I didn’t figure out how to care for others while still caring for myself,” said Elizabeth Miller, host of the Happy Healthy Caregiver podcast. “I wanted this podcast to provide an opportunity for real family caregivers to share how to be happy and healthy while caring for others.”
Miller is a wife, mother, full-time employee, family caregiver and Certified Caregiving Consultant. She launched the Happy Healthy Caregiver online blog, resources, and community in 2015, and has presented at the 2016 and 2017 National Caregiving Conference. Her story has also been featured in Woman’s Day and the Marietta Daily Journal. Miller also facilitates an Atlanta support group for family caregivers called the Atlanta Daughterhood Circle.
According to the Caregiver Action Network, over 90 million Americans are family caregivers for their loved ones. “The crazy thing is, most of these millions of Americans don’t even realize they are a family caregiver, so they struggle to find the help and support they need,” Miller said.
After being a featured guest on another Whole Care Network podcast, Healing Ties, Miller was offered her own show by Whole Care Network founder Chris MacLellan. She quickly realized her message to encourage family caregivers to prioritize their own health and happiness would be bolder and reach more people who need to know they aren’t alone by uniting with other caregiver advocates.
The Whole Care Network is a multi-media platform for caregivers to locate and share trusted resources, take comfort and refuge through real-life stories, while being personally validated in your caregiving journey by those who understand.
“When we create a collective impact on a social issue, we take ownership of the issue—which makes our families, our communities, and our businesses stronger for ourselves and for future generations,” said Whole Care Network founder Chris MacLellan. “Elizabeth has an infectious passion to help others in their caregiving journey and we are thrilled she is bringing the important message of prioritizing personal health and wellbeing to family caregivers who too often put their own needs last.”
The Whole Care Network is currently comprised of over a dozen podcasts that are available on TheWholeCareNetwork.com, as well as popular podcast platforms including iTunes, Spreaker, and iHeartRadio.
