Rayna Neises understands the joys and challenges that come from a season of caring. She helped care for both of her parents during their separate battles with Alzheimer’s over a thirty-year span. She is able to look back on those days now with no regrets – and she wishes the same for everyone caring for aging parents.
To help others through this challenging season of life, Rayna has written No Regrets: Hope for Your Caregiving Season, a book filled with her own heart-warming stories and practical suggestions for journeying through a caregiving season.
Rayna is an ICF Associate Certified Coach with certifications in both Life and Leadership Coaching from the Professional Christian Coaching Institute as well as a Positive Approach® to Care (PAC)Independent Certified Trainer. She is the host of “A Season of Caring Podcast” and a passionate speaker.
Rayna lives on a farm in southeast Kansas with her husband, Ron, and small pack of adorable dogs. She is the baby of her family, but most would never guess that. She is a former teacher and enjoys crafts of all kinds and spending time with her grandkids most of all.
The inspiration to write her book occurred at her Dad’s funeral. A lady attending the funeral told her that she needed to write a book. She said that her experiences with care giving would help so many people who are caring for their family member who has Alzheimer’s.
One word of encouragement was all Rayna needed to pen her story about her experiences of taking caring for her parents. She has always had a strong faith in Christ, and believes her faith is a gift from God. God knows Rayna’s story, after all, he wrote it. But life is about choices, and she chose to be obedient to God, by serving and honoring her parents with excellence.
