Rhonda Caudell managed care for seniors for over 20 years as their personal nurse geriatric care manager. Her passion working with seniors was discovered as a nurse in a “nursing home” when she was in her twenty’s. After losing her Mom and step-Mom to breast cancer, she noticed her Dad had really aged and was showing signs of dementia.
Rhonda found herself with conflicting priorities: her own business, concern for her Dad, and a husband and family of her own. She also knew many friends and acquaintances all seemed to be in the same life stage with challenges as their parents were transitioning into their later years.
Based on experiences professionally and personally, Endless Legacy was born, as was a new passion. She now wanted to transfer her experience and knowledge base of aging and clarifying what one’s aging parents want and need to other adults with parents who were without a plan for their future aging.
Rhonda knew how adult children needed to shift their parent/child relationship by understanding what the parent is going through, learning how to communicate in a way that establishes trust then partner to co-create a future plan that takes care of all those involved.
Instead of continuing a geriatric care management model or what Rhonda calls “done-for-you care management”, she developed a system that adults who are concerned for their parents as they age, could follow to obtain the clarity, peace of mind, and confidence they desired.
