As an elder, Joan Englander
has moved into a contemplative life of reflection and poetry, wishing to leave a legacy of her life's work with elders.
As founder of Healing Companions
, she developed a holistic pioneering vision for eldercare. For thirty years she taught elders and nursing staffs, served as in-service trainer for geriatric care facilities and gave presentations in Hospice and retirement centers. She is a holistic eldercare coach for families and friends.
Joan Englander's unique approach has encouraged former colleagues and clients to request the creation of an audiobook and teaching video. Often the response to her book, Joy in the Evening of Our Lives
is: “If only I had seen this book when I was caring for mom, so much more could have been given her.”
Funding is needed to create this audiobook on Audible and the free
teaching video on YouTube. Your donation however small will be greatly appreciated as we bring this wonderful project into fruition. Donations above $50 will receive a free digital edition of the book.
As a presenter and workshop leader at the Aging and Sage-ing Conference in North Carolina, at the Positive Aging Conference in Los Angeles and in a series of workshops at the Ojai Retreat in California, she brings forth her concept of Healing Companions to the broader public.
“An excellent guidebook for achieving a full life. Read it now and learn to live before your sun sets. Loved the work and the stories.”—Dr. Bernie Siegel, Ph.D., author of Love, Medicine and Miracles
