Respite Care Share, an OpenIDEO challenge finalist, was founded by caregiver advocate Joy Johnston in 2016. The caregiver support program offers caregivers care bags and resources on respite care.
The Memories Project blog was started in 2012, just after Joy Johnston's father died of Alzheimer's complications. Her community of fellow dementia caregivers has grown over the years, offering each other advice and support.
Not everyone is born a natural caregiver. Joy Johnston's award-winning collection of personal essays on family caregiving tackles the subject from a decidedly non-traditional approach, pushing boundaries and challenging assumptions. The book, published in 2017, won a gold medal at the 2018 IPPY Awards.
