Jan Allen

   This series of pages is designed for you to find quick, easy references to specific needs as well as some broader, more philosophical stuff.

   As a program supervisor and counselor, I have experience working closely with family members and their aging loved ones. I value this opportunity to share my knowledge and practical solutions to caregiving's many challenges.

   My hope is that you will find this a place to relax a little, learn a little and laugh a little.

Fondest Regards,
Jan Allen, CSW, MSE
