Caring for Nancy is a place of hope and support for those going through their caregiving journey. We help family and informal caregivers by providing valuable advice, resources and services.
Karin Pauly was her mother’s caregiver for 14 years all the while juggling a family with a husband and two kids, a demanding full-time job in marketing, and a family restaurant business. Her mother, Nancy Beronius, had been a wife and mother of three.
Nancy was a professional artist and expressed her creativity through water colors and oil. She was an avid creator, always crocheting, sewing, writing, drawing and enjoying the beauty of her rose gardens.
Founding Caring for Nancy
Through Karin’s experience of taking care of her mother, she recognized there was a lack of support and education for family and informal caregivers. Shortly after her mother’s passing in 2018, Karin founded Caring for Nancy and created the organization she wished was available when caring for her mother.
Today, Caring for Nancy provides professional advice, real-life stories and local resources. We help ease caregivers’ burdens and support their extraordinary work.
“Caring for Nancy is what I wish I had when caregiving for my mother. An intuitive hub that provides resources for making more informed decisions and support through community connections.”
