Biography

Becky Feola is a multi-award-winning author who was most recently honored with the Silver Award in the Aging Consciously category of the Nautilus Awards and The Grand Prize in the category of Health along with The First Horizons Award for superior work by a debut author through The Eric Hoffer Awards.

Becky learned the value of hard work and life while being raised on remote cattle ranches in Arizona and Wyoming. During those early years, she developed a keen sense of service and nurturing towards other living creatures while caring for orphaned calves, sick kittens, and her colt, Little George.

Later in life, she would find herself immersed in an 11-year battle as a caregiver after her husband was diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease. The day her husband tried to strangle her during a frightening hallucination was the day Becky’s life would change forever. After that incident and subsequent hospitalization, the doctors told her that her husband would never be coming home again. This led to a frantic search for a professional care facility that would tend to her beloved’s needs as well or better than she could.

Once he passed away in 2005, Becky healed herself by creating two businesses devoted to helping other caregivers find ethical and moral solutions to their needs — The NJF Center for Caregivers and Assisted Living Advantage. Now, she has taken that passion a step further with her book The Eldercare Consultant, Your Guide to Making the Best Choices Possible, AMACOM Books.

Becky lives in Phoenix, Arizona and while continuing to provide eldercare services, she has finished her first novel, Winter’s Child.
