In 1988, Sheila was part of a caregiving team for a dying friend for 4 years. She and another friend created a blueprint to replicate systems they used. It became the Share The Care™ model and book. In 2003, she founded ShareTheCaregiving, a non-profit to teach ordinary people how to organize and maintain a caregiving group. The model is used in 48 states and 9 countries. She’s trained thousands of healthcare professionals, clergy, others to use it to reduce caregiver burnout and costs.
