Joy Johnston was missing that caregiving gene. She was allergic to children and being around sick people filled her with dread. Joy was forced to face her greatest fears when her father developed dementia and just six months after his death, her mother was diagnosed with colon cancer. She reluctantly accepted the caregiving crown and embarked on a journey that included laughs, tears, and more bodily fluids than she ever imagined possible.After experiencing the quiet desperation, isolation, and financial devastation that so many caregivers face, Joy is making it her life's work to advocate for better support of family and professional caregivers. Her latest project, Respite Care Share, is an organization dedicated to helping caregivers take a well-deserved break.
