Ep 93: A Caregiving Special With Lee Woodruff, Sheila Lirio Marcelo and Holly Robinson Peete

HerMoney recently headed to Washington, D.C. to AARP’s Family Caregiving 2018 summit — a day focused on what’s new in family caregiving (politically, technologically, professionally, personally and, yes, financially). We had amazing conversations with bestselling author Lee Woodruff (who cared for her husband, ABC’s Bob Woodruff, after he suffered a traumatic brain injury while reporting in Iraq), Sheila Lirio Marcelo, founder, chairwoman and CEO of Care.com (who founded the site as a young working mother with two young children and ailing parents) and actress and activist Holly Robinson Peete (who at 19 years old was the caregiver for her father and, two decades later, for her son with autism). There are over 40 million family caregivers in America. If you know one, please share this episode. I got a lot out of it personally, and I think you will as well.
