Betsy’s Story

Betsy’s passion is to provide caregivers with the necessary tools and game plan to give them confidence and hope during this season of their lives. Betsy leads local support groups and works with caregivers one-on-one across the country.

When Betsy learned her mother, Barbara Broyles, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, she and her family moved from Texas 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 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 produced the 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.

At the age of 14 when most girls are shopping with friends, going to school dances, and learning to drive, Molly became a third generation caregiver for her grandmother. Moving into the family home of her grandfather, college football legend Coach Frank Broyles, Molly watched her family struggle through some tough, yet love-filled years as Alzheimer’s disease took the life of her grandmother.

Jacob’s Story

Jacob is an integral part of the foundation and participates in all aspects of its operations, from financial management and resource distribution to marketing.

As Frank and Barbara’s grandson, Jacob knows firsthand the sacrifices made to care for a family member living with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Watching his family start the foundation and help so many families inspired him to pursue a career with meaning.

Jacob began his career in operations for a Fortune 500 company in Texas and, after a few years, transitioned into a business development role for a startup company in Northwest Arkansas. He has volunteered with the foundation since its inception, officially joined the staff part-time in 2017, and jumped at the opportunity to go full-time when it arose.

He is proud to work with his family in the nonprofit industry where our work has a real impact. He believes it is a privilege to help us help you!
