PAN55: Share the Care with Sheila Warnock
Sheila Warnock had several profound experiences change her life. First, she became sole caregiver of her ill mother and an emotional crutch for her best friend, Susan, who was diagnosed with cancer. By undertaking this dual role, Sheila truly experienced the tremendous burden caregivers have to endure. In 1988, she became part of a group of 12 women (mostly strangers to each other) who came together and stayed together for the next three and a half years to care for friend Susan. The contrast of caring for someone without support to the experience of sharing responsibilities with a group proved to Sheila that this new collaborative approach to caregiving was something of immeasurable value and needed to be shared with caregivers everywhere. As a result, she and her co-author, Cappy Capossela, documented the systems used by the group in their book, Share The Care, How To Organize A Group To Care For Someone Who Is Seriously Ill, Simon & Schuster, 1995. This system guides friends, neighbors, co-workers, and acquaintances with the roadmap for creating and maintaining a “caregiving family” to support someone they know facing a health, aging, medical issue or any circumstance were support is needed including multiple births, or grandparents raising small children. In this episode we learn more about Sheila and her story.

“It felt really odd to me to walk into the transfusion center for chemo and see a room full of men my grandfather’s age and then go to a doctor’s appointment in a different room covered in balloon stickers and children’s handprints on the walls. Even finding other patients with a similar age and diagnosis across the country was a struggle. Where did I fit in? I often felt very alone but I knew there had to be other young adult patients out there that felt the same. I knew this wasn’t the way the cancer experience had to be for us.” – Kayla Redig About Kayla Redig Kayla Redig was a competitive athlete and elementary school teacher before she was diagnosed with breast cancer at 24 years-old.
