More About Our Office

I'm Dawn Crimson, President and Owner of Caring Transititions of Southern Illinois, which opened Summer 2012. I relocated to Carbondale in 1999 with my family, while in the middle of a long career in the software industry. I chose to open Caring Transitions partly because of our family's experience caring for relatives when Alzheimer's Disease developed. When they needed to be moved to a safer location, their five adult children had to manage the project in shifts, flying in from all over the country. I am dedicated to helping others through such difficult times, to limit the stress and pain -- and even help make the transition a positive experience.
