Welcome to the Frank & Barbara Broyles Foundation
Educating, supporting, and connecting with
caregivers is at the heart of what we do.
To turn the crisis of caring for a person with Alzheimer’s Disease or Dementia into a positive life event ensuring the best quality of life for all involved.
To be a loving source of practical, life-changing information for Alzheimer’s caregiver. Through education, encouragement and resources, we instill hope for a better quality of life for the entire family.
What We Do
We provide support and resources for family caregivers caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s Disease. We have taken our own care-giving experience and turned it into simple and reliable training. Educating, supporting and connecting with caregivers is at the heart of what we do.
The Playbook for Alzheimer’s Caregivers was written to give you practical tips and guidance when caring for a loved one.
What Others are Saying
Betsy and Molly talked WITH our residents’ family members, rather than TO them and gave them many helpful suggestions they could start using immediately. Their down-to-earth manner always brings comments, from
whatever audience they speak to, of “that was the best talk we have ever heard” and “that was just what we needed to hear”. Thank you, Betsy and Molly, for your dedication and tireless effort in helping caregivers everywhere.
Betsy Broyles-Arnold and Molly Gay have a compassionate style that engages the audience from the very beginning. Sharing their perspective from different generations, enabled all members of the audience to relate to caregivers and the trials of caring for someone with dementia. Participants laughed, cried and walked away feeling a sense of relief as they had a new toolbox of practical approaches based on the easy-to-use Coach Broyle’s Playbook. They are compassionate, dedicated and authentic.Kelly A. Raach
At our recent RCI Summit, the caregiving workshop presentations by Betsy Arnold and Molly Arnold Gay were inspirational to all who attended.Dr. Leisa Easom
When my wife, Barbara, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease I didn’t know much about the disease or the impact it would have on the lives of our children and their families. What I did know was that Alzheimer’s was not going to destroy our love for life. Like so many families touched by Alzheimer’s Disease we, too have experienced our share of heartbreak however we decided to focus on what we did have instead of what we did not. We chose to celebrate our memories, our “todays” making each day the best it can be with no regrets.
I had so many questions and spent a great deal of time looking for answers. Falling back on my coaching days I approached Alzheimer’s much like I would an opponent on the field. A solid game plan and a dedicated team gave me the Coach’s Playbook we needed to care for Barbara. This Playbook for Alzheimer’s Caregivers was written to give you practical tips in order to help guide you and is to be used as a social model with the idea that we are doing this with our loved ones and not for them.
I leave with you what I have learned. Treasure each day and live it to the very fullest. Cherish the time you spend together and perhaps the most important, love each other unconditionally. I pray you find peace in knowing that it is still possible to both live and love when someone you know is living with Alzheimer’s Disease.
