Caroline H. Sheppard, MSW

Caroline Sheppard, MSW, recently published a book focusing on her long distance caregiving experiences with five family members spanning a fourteen-year period. She hopes her stories and experiences can help others facing caregiving from both far and near, by sharing difficult yet rewarding lessons learned. She became a caregiver while on a leave of absence. She soon found her life and priorities so changed that she never went back to work. Caroline has been a social worker for her adult working life, with a specialty in families, children and schools and has been certified as a trauma and loss specialist. She has written three children’s books: “Brave Bart,” a story for grieving and traumatized children (which is still in print), “Shadow Moves,” a story for difficult and traumatic moves and “Brave Bart and The Bully.” Two of these were illustrated by her brother who sadly passed away before the third book was completed. She was also his long distance caregiver.
