Caregiver Support & Relationships


October 2, 2021 • 1-3 PM EST

Guest Speaker:  
 Cathy Little - IHMC

Cathy Little

Community Health Coordinator
Interdenominational Health Ministry Coalition (IHMC)

Cathy grew up in Rochester, NY with four sisters, two brothers and a host of foster care brothers and
sisters. Her mother was and still is a caregiver. She is her mother’s child as she assumed the role as a
caregiver when her mother-in-law’s Parkinson disease began to progress and now, she is the caregiver
for her brother who is dealing with a stroke and dementia. Like many others that care for loved ones.
Cathy has no formal training. She gets frustrated with the system and overwhelmed many days. She
tries to operate from a place of compassion and ask God daily for guidance, wisdom, patience, peace
and love. She has been married to her best friend for 35 years and they are the proud parents of
two beautiful adult daughters and two amazing grandchildren. She enjoys spending time with her
grandchildren, adult coloring, cooking, baking, word search puzzles, reading, gardening, napping and
some forms of exercise.

She is a Servant Leader at heart and enjoys serving in her church and the community.
One of her favorite scriptures that she meditates on as a caregiver is: Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be
anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present
your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your
hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Cathy is the Program Coordinator for the Interdenominational Health Ministry Coalition (IHMC)
and the Baby Safe Sleep Coalition a program of the Jewish Family Service. Both jobs provide her the
opportunity to help others in our community.
