Description


Caring is Art is a companion book for family caregivers, created by former family caregiver and artist, Leilani Norman. Taking care of another person is both rewarding and challenging, filled with love and difficulty. Caring is Art includes resources, quotes from caregivers, and self-care hacks. It is illustrated with paintings and photographs that Leilani created while supporting her parents' end of life journeys.

About the Author


Leilani Norman completed a twenty-year arc of support to her parents when her mother died in late 2021. She is a visual artist, entrepreneur, award-winning designer, and the parent of two young adults. Leilani holds a certificate in Gerontology from the University of Washington and a BA in Psychology. Her interest in caregiver self-advocacy through nutrition and wellness are the subjects of two academic papers she wrote, "Connecting the Dots: Nutrition and Cognitive Health" (2020), and "Optimal Caregiving: Fostering Cooperation Between Direct Care Workers and Residents’ Family Members" (2021).
