Hi, My name is Dave Nassaney and I help caregivers to not just survive, but to THRIVE. As a caregiver for more than 23-years, I understand the pain and frustration of caregiving. I teach caregivers who are taking care of their loved ones (due to an illness or disability) how to take care of themselves FIRST.
Why am I so qualified to be “The Caregiver’s Caregiver” you might ask? Well, as I have mentioned, I am (and have been) a caregiver to my beautiful wife, Charlene, since 1996, when she suffered a massive stroke that left her severely speech impaired and paralyzed on the right side.
After a 3-year grieving period, we almost broke up, but we hung in there. She was angry and bitter most of the time, and after I attended a caregiver support group, I learned that I had to put my needs first — like the airlines tell us to put our oxygen mask on first. After doing this, she started becoming her old self again, and our love was rekindled.
I then realized that there were so many other caregivers out there suffering and feeling all alone, I didn’t want them to suffer or give up like I almost did. So, I became Dave, The Caregiver’s Caregiver.
I now host a popular syndicated radio show heard in all 50 states and 135 countries. I am a best-selling author, currently writing my 4th book. I have spoken on the same stage with Suzanne Somers at Harvard, and Martha Stewart at Carnegie Hall. During my current national book & media tour, I have appeared on 34 network TV shows from Hawaii to Washington, DC, as well as speaking at the, Nasdaq Market Site, The New York City Bar, Coca Cola, Mercedes Benz,, the Harvard Clubs of Boston and New York, a Ted Talk, and West Point, sharing my message to caregivers, “How To Prevent Your Loved One’s Illness or Disease (or even the Corona Virus) From Killing You.”
