Isabel Melgarejo - The Tidy Coach

I’m Isabel Melgarejo, and I was raised never to talk about the uncomfortable things in life and to put myself after everyone else’s needs (just like any other woman I know). In college, after Dad’s passing, I had to change all my beliefs. I had to talk about death, about my mom’s future, and I had to ask for a LOT of favors.

After connecting with many caregivers when I moved to Texas and remembering one of the toughest seasons in my life, I created a program to help caregivers navigate these very uncomfortable conversations and help them through their particular journeys with their loved ones. In this podcast, I want to share advice on how to prioritize your mental health, how to have those difficult conversations, and how to talk you out of feeling guilty and overwhelmed.

It all starts with Mom asking for help in running a couple of errands, we gladly accept because we know we can make her happy, and we are running errands for ourselves anyways. Soon, those few errands become more frequent. One day, mom falls and hurts herself, you run to her home to take her to the hospital, fortunately, she didn’t hurt herself badly, but the doctor says she can't live by herself anymore. Overwhelm is all you can feel.

You can expect to take care of her for the next 5 years; the question is, who will take care of you?

If you’re a caregiver, this podcast is for you. Here you will find resources to take care of yourself because I’m on a mission of making sure the caregiver feels her best to provide the best care her parents need and deserve! You are a queen, and you deserve to feel like so!
