Worried about your parents? Let's talk.

Whether your family is in a crisis or you just want to plan ahead, I can help you 
make sense of what’s happening now – and make a plan for what may happen next.

I'm glad you're here.

My name is Libby Brittain, and I'm the founder of Quilt Care Coaching. Before I started my business, I worked in the technology industry in the San Francisco Bay Area while I cared for my mom, Carol, who has early-onset Alzheimer's disease.

I started my business to offer personal and practical support to other professionals who care for their aging parents from near or far due to an illness, an injury, or old age – and who are balancing that role with their responsibilities at work and at home.

Our sessions are a time for you to talk openly about the challenges of a caregiving role and work with a thoughtful and neutral collaborator on a plan to tackle them. I can also refer you to other resources or specialists (like an elder law attorney or a financial planner) that are a good fit for you and for your family.

“Libby bravely shared the experience of caring for her mom with many of our co-workers at Facebook and created a thriving peer-to-peer support system for other caregivers at the company. Her perspective has always been personal, thoughtful, and valuable.”

Gary Johnson, Head of Business and Corporate Development at Pinterest

“Libby has become a trusted resource for me and several of my friends as we navigate caring for our aging parents – often from thousands of miles away. She is the first person who comes to mind when a friend tells me they need help.”

Katie Jacobs Stanton, Founder at Moxxie Ventures

You’re not alone.

We know there are over 40 million people in the United States who are caring for their parents or other adult family members. Six in 10 of those people are balancing their caregiving responsibilities with a career, and one in four are Millennials.

Almost a third of all employees say their careers have been negatively impacted by caregiving. Many even consider dropping out of the workforce entirely to meet the significant and often unpredictable demands of a caregiving role.

These are big numbers, but we also know it's still common for caregivers to feel alone. Most of us don't have as many opportunities to talk about our parents as we do to talk about our children – and few supportive policies or benefits have been created with the needs of working caregivers in mind.

Here’s how I can help.

Whether you're coping with a parent's existing illness or injury or simply navigating old age alongside them, having a thoughtful and neutral third-party to talk to about your family caregiving role can be a big help.

I offer hour-long, 1:1 sessions via Google Hangouts on a bi-weekly or monthly basis. The cost for these sessions is $150/hour. My goal is to meet you wherever you are, so the role I play during our sessions is flexible: I can be a sounding board, a decision partner, a research assistant, or something else that feels right to you.

During our first session, we'll talk about you, your family, and your caregiving role and decide how to work together. You can schedule our free intro call below.

Let's get started.
