About Lili Udell Fiore: 

In her 40s, Lili found herself in the difficult situation that occurs in many people’s lives. Dealing with aging family members, raising kids, managing her career, her marriage, her busy husband, and being involved in all of the activities for her daughter and stepsons that she could fit in. Suddenly, she got a call that her beloved Aunt, who lived many states away, was not well. Faced with managing her Aunt’s care from afar in between in-person visits, Lili spoke to many professional people about how to manage and handle everything in her aunt’s life until she got better. Everyone had their own opinion, and many also had their own agendas that had nothing to do with what was best for her Aunt. Eventually, Lili found her way and then was also faced with her aging parents as well. 

Lili’s guidance business – Much Love Lili and Lili’s Caregiver’s Guide resource book (coming before the end of the year) are the sum of all the lessons learned and all the wisdom gained from all the missteps. It also includes a lot of knowledge on death and dying that Lili gained from her father, Rev. Udell, who was one of the early teachers of death and dying in the state of Vermont back in the 1970s. Lili got her certification as an End of Life Doula from the program at the University of Vermont to solidify everything she had learned from her experience as a caregiver and the wisdom from her dad. Lili wrote this book to be the resource she couldn’t find when her world was imploding and hopes that it helps you in your journey as a Caregiver or as someone who wants to know more about caregiving or creating a good death for their Loved Ones.
