Meet Cheryl Hutto
Coach for care partners.
Hello! I am a care partner for my wife, Belle. Twelve years ago, I remember visiting the memory clinic with Belle to get the results of her memory test. When the clinic director began to cry, I knew that our lives had changed forever.
For months I couldn’t find meaning in anything. I spent countless hours scouring the internet for help or a cure for her dementia. There was no help. My diet was a wreck. I could barely breathe. Work became a distant memory. The fear of losing my wife was all-consuming. But in fact, I was losing myself.
Finally, I realized that I mattered, too.
I still care for Belle. I have also gone on to become a certified coach for caregivers as well as a grief care specialist.
I have not looked back.
My passion is to share with others how the caring journey can be not only peaceful but one filled with joy and laughter.
