Worried about your parents? Let's talk about it.

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

What is Quilt Care Coaching?

Quilt Care Coaching is a consultancy started by Libby Brittain to provide personal and practical support to professionals who care for their parents or other adult family members due to an illness, an injury, or old age.

A care coach is one part leadership coach and one part care manager. Coaching 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.

Libby started Quilt Care Coaching in 2019 after several years spent working in the technology industry while caring for her mother, Carol, who has early-onset Alzheimer's disease.

“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.

There are over 40 million people in the United States who care for their parents or other adult family members – and 6 in 10 of them are balancing their caregiving responsibilities with a career.

In fact, almost a third of all employees – and more senior executives – say their careers have been negatively impacted by caregiving responsibilities. Many caregivers even consider dropping out of the workforce entirely to meet the significant and often unpredictable demands of a caregiving role.

Yet it's also not uncommon for caregivers to feel isolated. Few supportive services, policies, or benefits have been created with the needs of working caregivers in mind, and friends and family don't always know what to say or how to help.

Here’s how I can help.

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

I offer hour-long 1:1s via Google Hangouts on a bi-weekly or monthly basis. During this time, we’ll talk about you, your family, and your caregiving goals and challenges. The cost for these sessions is $150/hour.

During this time, I can be a sounding board for your concerns, help you make hard decisions, point you toward trusted local resources, or partner with you as you make a plan to tackle the many challenges that come up in a family caregiving role.
