I am Forrest Jones, MD, graduate of the Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine, the family medicine residency at Chicago’s Cook County Hospital, and a family physician for more than forty years.
For the past fifteen years, my practice has focused on caring for seniors, and I witnessed many of the problems their family members faced. I also served as medical power of attorney for my parents.
My mission for this community is to help family caregivers overcome barriers to their wellbeing and peace of mind. My hope is for family caregivers to “finish well”. That is, to have peace of mind about the job you do, to have the support of your family to the extent that is possible, and for your loved one to feel well cared for.
