Terri Corcoran

Terri Corcoran lives in Falls Church, Virginia, and has been a full-time caregiver for her husband Vince since 2004. Vince is severely disabled physically and mentally by the genetic condition Fragile X-Associated Tremor Ataxia Syndrome. Terri is on the Board of Directors of the Well Spouse® Association, which offers support and resources for spousal caregivers. She also serves as the association’s PR chairperson and as the editor of their newsletter Mainstay.

Although not formally trained in caregiving, she has, by necessity, become well-educated in the trials of family caregivers.
