Host and Creator of Daughterhood The Podcast

Rosanne cared for her mother over a 12 year span starting as a stealth caregiver, to full time caregiver, to in-home, sandwich caregiver for her mother’s final 6 years.

Rosanne created Daughterhood The Podcast: For Caregivers after experiencing first-hand the stress and isolation caregiving brings along with the lack of meaningful resources for caregivers. The podcast cultivates a dynamic group of subject matter experts to help listeners navigate these uncharted, and many times, tumultuous waters.

The podcast’s subject matter has ranged from legal advice, to establishing boundaries, to end of life care, and the list continues to grow. Guests have included physicians, best-selling authors, dementia experts and more. Caregiving is inherently difficult and this podcast hopes to provide insight, resources, and skills to manage the challenges relating to caregiving, and to know you are not alone!

Rosanne has been featured in CNN Health, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Barron’s, Next Avenue and others. She is also a proud member of AlzAuthors.

Agingcare.com named Daughterhood the Podcast: For Caregivers #1 in their list of Essential Caregiver Podcasts. Rosanne also facilitates a bi-monthly Daughterhood Circle.
