Who created Keeping It REAL Caregiving?

Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist, turned family caregiver, turned educator and advocate, Julia Yarbough created Keeping it REAL Caregiving to deliver information, guidance, support and resources - because you don’t know what you don’t know!

KIRC dives into some of the tough issues, we reach out to subject-matter experts, share REAL stories of family caregivers and we talk with aging individuals to get REAL about what you need to know!

Family caregiving can be one of the most rewarding jobs one will ever have but, let’s keep it REAL! It can also “kick your butt!”
