Toula Wootan founded the Caregiver Coalition of Northeast Florida in 2008. The Caregiver Coalition is now comprised of 15 nonprofits that combine resources to provide free “Caring for the Caregiver“ conferences, an annual Caregiver Expo, “Caregiver Connections” newsletter, a robust website and more. She works closely with local, state and national organizations and with elder care professionals to continue this important work. Since 2010, Toula’s weekly radio show, “Toula’s Tips for Caregivers,” has offered advice to caregivers. It can be heard on I-Heart: https://www.iheart.com/show/53-Toulas-Tips-for-Caregivers/and http://www.toulastipsforcaregivers.com/. Toula is also the primary caregiver for her parents.
