Meet Judy Morton
Judy became a family caregiver when her father was diagnosed with cancer some 30 years ago. Since that time, she has helped care for most of her family as they dealt with various medical issues. She found herself faced with the legal and practical issues that need to be addressed with aging as well. It became a family joke that she “inherited her nursing skills from her grandmother”. Judy's grandmother was one of the first 100 registered nurses in the state of Texas!
Caregiving has been one of the most difficult, yet rewarding, things Judy has ever done. New to caregiving, Judy learning the hard way about things like:
- Durable Powers of Attorney
- Medical Proxies
- Advanced Directives
- DNR forms
Judy now shares her caregiving experiences. She hopes to help others who are now on that same journey.
Judy spent time in a couple of on-line support groups for caregivers. Eventually becoming one of the moderators for one group. She founded the Facebook group “Senior Caregivers".
Judy wanted to reach out to the many other caregivers out there. She wants to offer encouragement, support and advice.
