The Proactive Caregiver:
Stop Reacting to Life, Start Living Proactivly

by Jessica Lizel Cannon

The Proactive Caregiver book will inspire caregivers surrounded by the darkness of fear, anxiety, and overwhelm with the light of acceptance and empowerment. It will encourage you to be a healthier caregiver and teach you to appreciate the role model you have become as a caregiver for your children, causing a cultural shift.

This book is for caregivers of all ages, with loved ones living with Dementia or suspecting behavioral changes. Jessica shares her journey of caring for her mother, who lives with mixed Dementia, including FTD coupled with Bipolar Manic Depression Disorder.


Behind their denial and avoidance, the Spirit waited patiently to begin transforming both of them. Throughout Jessica’s transformation, she discovered the reactive pitfalls many caregivers experience. With Spiritual guidance, Jessica’s transformation resulted in becoming The Proactive Caregiver. You, too, can learn to be proactive rather than reactive as you join her on this journey. Stop reacting to life and start creating a better quality of life while living guilt-free and shame-free.


The Proactive Caregiver book will inform, educate, and encourage you to embrace the emotional challenges by allowing personal growth to transform and enrich your life. When your loved ones begin to lose time and memories or become combative, you must be prepared to step into their world with non-threatening and graceful manners. Your relationship with your loved one may prevent this from happening.

So what do we do? How do we begin to dig into our lives to promote positive change and become healthier caregivers throughout the process? Jessica wasted so much energy trying to be strong for the family by hiding pain and suffering, which inevitably made her sick and depressed. Find out how to listen to the gentle whispers of guidance and become a Proactive Caregiver too.


The Proactive Journey: Volume 1

by Jessica Lizel Cannon

In 2016 Jessica Lizel Cannon stepped away from a career as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) to become a full-time caregiver for her mother.

Blogging became a way to help cope with the daily stresses as she navigated a new landscape of compliance, medical journals, and evolving limitations with activities of daily living.

After meeting more and more caregivers of all ages also seeking this information, Jessica realized her passion for writing could not only become a new career but also create the platform to start a podcast. Helping others find the light on their journey after feeling the pressures from the dark is of great importance to her.

In The Proactive Journey Volume 1, you can read about those first steps into the world of caring for a loved one with mixed dementia. You will also discover, as Jessica did, some valuable tips to help you along your way.
