We are pleased to announce that Amber Gifford has joined Caregiving Kinetics! Amber will help us reach caregivers everywhere through her efforts in research, outreach, publicity, and marketing.
Amber is not a stranger to caregiving.
Born and raised in Connecticut, Amber spent most of her “first” career in senior care. She was proud to have worked for multiple Assisted Living Communities as both a Memory Care Director and Executive Director. Her greatest accomplishments included therapeutic program development, relationship cultivation, and caregiver support group facilitation.
After meeting her husband and moving down south, Amber began to remotely support businesses with a focus on the wellness of others. When Amber found out that Dr. Aaron Blight was searching for someone to assist him in the promotion of his forthcoming book on caregiving, she knew it would be a great fit. Not only was Amber impressed by Aaron’s background and drive to make a difference in the lives of so many others, but she felt her past experiences would lend well to the success of Caregiving Kinetics, too!
Amber genuinely believes in the saying “everything happens for a reason” and is excited to assist Aaron in spreading his message of hope. She currently resides in North Carolina with her husband and infant son, and their family will be growing as they are expecting a baby girl in September!
Asked for a piece of advice she’d share with caregivers today, Amber said, “Be patient with yourself. Your relationship with your loved one is growing and evolving in ways you probably didn’t plan for. If you continue to show love and put your best foot forward, then you can rest easy knowing you are doing all you can despite how it may feel in certain moments.”
