My guests Jahnna Beecham and Katie Ortlip RN, LCSW are friends and neighbors who ended up working together when Jahnna became a caregiver for her father and Katie became their hospice social worker. The two women were inspired by this experience to create a comprehensive guidebook for caregivers that would be a resource and provide answers for their most common questions.


In this interview you will learn:

  • How Jahnna and Katie were inspired to write a book together and the benefits of their collaboration
  • What led Katie to a career in hospice
  • What it was like for Jahnna to become a caregiver for her father
  • Tips for caregivers for reducing stress
  • Practical information contained in the book
  • Who can benefit most from this book

Jahnna Beecham recently edited National Geographic’s Science Encyclopedia (2016) and was a contributing editor for National Geographic’s The Ultimate Explorer Field Guide: Birds (2015). Under the pen name Jahnna N. Malcolm she has written more than 130 books for juveniles and young adults for Scholastic, Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins and more.

Katie Ortlip, RN, LCSW, is co-author of Spiritual Tools for the Dying. She received her nursing degree from Santa Barbara City College and a BS in Psychology and Masters of Social Work at SUNY-Albany. She has been a social worker for Asante Hospice for twenty-five years.
