Talk to someone who gets it.


Whether your aging parents are in a crisis or you're just planning ahead, I started Quilt to help you make sense of what's happening now and make a plan for what may happen next.

Here is a favorite photo of my mother, Carol, and me on my wedding day in March 2019.

I'm glad you're here.

My name is Libby Brittain. I'm a caregiver, a technologist – and I'm the founder of Quilt.

I started Quilt because I know how hard it is to care for an aging parent, especially when you're balancing your caregiving role with other responsibilities at work and at home.

Before I started Quilt, I worked for a large consumer technology company in the San Francisco Bay Area – and became the primary caregiver for my mother, Carol, who was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease in 2017.

When my mom got sick, I felt isolated and overwhelmed — and I had lots of important legal, financial, and emotional questions that her doctors couldn't answer. I needed support that was personal, flexible, and consistent, but I never found it.

I started Quilt to offer that support to you.

Here’s how I can help.

I offer 1-hour, one-on-one phone or video calls for $120.00 per call. After our first call, many people choose to schedule recurring calls every two weeks or every month, depending on what makes sense for them and their family.

I work with people who care for their aging parents in many ways and for many reasons. I would love to help you whether you care for one or both parents, because of an illness or an injury, or from nearby or from far away. It all 'counts' as caregiving to me.

Manage a crisis or plan ahead

Our calls will be a time for you to talk openly about your family and your caregiving role. We will identify the short-term and long-term challenges you're facing and make a plan to address them together.

Learn caregiving skills

Caregivers take on a wide range of responsibilities, and you deserve support on all of them. I will help you figure out how to approach legal and financial planning, manage challenging family dynamics, and more.

Get referrals to local resources

Help is out there, but it's hard to find. I will do the hard work of finding local programs like in-home and day care services or professionals like estate attorneys and patient advocates so you don't have to.

Let's get started.

Send me an email at libby@quiltcanhelp.com or use this form to tell me about you and your family. I'll follow up with you by email right away to schedule our first call.
