Idaho Geriatric Care Manager Dee Childers
Dee Childers is a Certified Care Manager located in Eagle, Idaho. She is the founder of Life Changes Elder Care Consulting, a care management company. She started the company after experiencing the challenges of helping her parents throughout the aging process. It became clear to her that with our aging population, many others would also find themselves feeling clueless and overwhelmed with the responsibilities of senior care giving.
Dee earned BS in Psychology from the University of Utah and a MS in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Phillips Graduate Institute. Furthermore, she comes to this profession after 30 years in corporate America as a Human Resources Executive. She brings extensive experience in crisis management, conflict resolution, and health and safety. Additionally, she worked as a Marriage and Family Therapist for six years. As she has been a caregiver for many years to her parents and others, Dee personally understands the demands and emotional turmoil of care giving; it takes a toll on you, your aging loved one, and entire the family. Ms. Childers is also a court appointed Guardian and Conservator, experienced with the legal and medical systems. Finally, she is also a certified Elder Mediatory and volunteer for the Alzheimer’s Association.
Dee’s training and background in both counseling and human resources management and first-hand experience with her changing role in family inspired Dee to turn her experience into a way to help others in similar situations. She now works with families around the country to assess, select and manage the specific needs of our elders while giving family caregivers the professional help needed to manage and support the needs of those they love.
