Welcome to My Mother's Caregiver
Who is Sharon Osvald?
I am a wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, writer and worship leader. My biggest love is my family: My husband of 25+ years, my young adult son, married daughter, son-in-law, grand daughter, siblings, extended family and one very scruffy dog.
Having been a freelance writer since 1999, I've written for newspapers including The London Free Press, business and lifestyle magazines, The Mom & Caregiver, life stories, lifestyle reporting and individual businesses. I am a Christian, youth leader, former broadcaster (www.ucbcanada.com) and addictions counsellor (www.newlifegirlshome.com).
I have two great part time positions: the Worship Coordinator at Brighton Fellowship Church and a Lived Experience/Patient Engagement Advisor serving as Lived Experience Network Coordinator for Providence Care Behavioural Support Services and the Alzheimer Societies of S.E. Ontario.
Although I often promote the Lived Experience Network project from this website, www.mymotherscaregiver.com is not officially associated with the South Eastern Ontario Lived Experience Network, the Lived online Experience Cafe or www.dementiacrossroads.ca. All comments and opinions expressed our my own.
I am so glad to walk alongside you in the journey.
