Our mission is to impact the lives of caregiving families. Our job is to ensure that you are caring for yourself body, soul, and spirit, in order to care for others.

There are more than 65 million of us and growing. We have limited help, support, and resources and most of us are running on fumes! As The Caregiving Doctor, all I ask for you to do is TO DO your best to care without killing yourself.


We will equip you with the necessary guidance, coaching, and tools to enhance your care abilities with your loved ones. The Caregiving Doctor, Clarissa Fells Smith, has spent over 40 years working with caregiving families and their loved ones. Be prepared to go on this journey.


We will be providing education, consultation, and the necessary tools to care for yourself and those you love. Education in family caregiving is an ongoing process. Spreading information about caregiving problems and solutions will help to improve the daily lives of caregiving families. By educating the public about caregiving challenges, this will increase awareness of why we need more support, resources, and training.


There will be plenty of adversity and hills to climb. That’s why it is crucial that we encourage and uplift one another as fellow caregivers. Finding empowerment is a key step to being a successful caregiver. I am personally empowering you to keep your family members at home if at all possible.
