When Betsy learned her mother, Barbara Broyles, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, she immediately made plans to move with her family from Houston, TX to Fayetteville, AR, to be a primary caregiver alongside her twin sister, Linda. This experience changed her and her family forever.
After her mother passed, Betsy, her sister, and her father, Coach Frank Broyles, were inspired to share the knowledge they gained with others. Combining the latest research with their own experiences as a caregiving daughter and spouse, respectively, they authored Coach Broyles’ Playbook for Alzheimer’s Caregivers. There are more than 1 million books in print and it has been translated into 11 languages.
Over the last 10+ years of this mission, Betsy has devoted her life to helping caregivers. Betsy has traveled all over the United States giving more than 150 speeches to different organizations and appearing on more than 400 TV and radio shows, with a total reach exceeding 30 million households.
As the need to help caregivers continues to grow, Betsy knows her work helps provide a valuable resource to the countless families affected by dementia including Alzheimer’s. Now, Betsy looks to increase the reach and awareness of the foundation with her family by her side.
