About Fern Pessin:
Since 2016 when Fern moved to Florida to provide support for her aging parents, she has used her skills as a writer, event planner, fundraiser, public relations and promotion expert to learn what needed to be done and to act as an advocate for her parents. She became certified as a Home Health Aide, attended conferences and classes, read and watched materials, interviewed experts, attended caregiver classes and weekly support groups and more, to ensure understanding of what to look for and do for her parents both physically and emotionally. She collected a team of experts to guide her and her siblings through the financial, legal, and medical requirements of securing her parents well-being over the long term. I’ll Be Right There: A Guidebook for Adults Caring for their Aging Parents was written to remove the overwhelm of the caregiving role and support families on the caregiving journey; to help people know what they didn’t know they needed to know when they find themselves in the role of helping a parent. Fern is committed to visiting communities to help caregivers and their family members find support, recognition and joy.
