Welcome To Sandwiched KC.

Help for those who are helping

In Kansas City and caring for a loved one? We can help!

We are a 501c3 nonprofit helping family caregivers in the Kansas City metro area by providing information and referral, support groups, education, and self-care activities. Our mission is to create opportunities for family caregivers to find local support and shared wisdom.

How We Help

We’re committed to providing local family caregivers with a space to learn and ask questions to take the right path, opportunities to connect with others who have been in their shoes, and resources to help them and their care partners on their path to the best life possible.

1:1 Coaching & Support

We help family caregivers on both sides of the state line navigate their caregiving journeys.

Contact us for information and advice to help you care for a loved one.

Training & Workshops

We offer workshops for family caregivers in all stages of their journey, from preparing to care to after caregiving is over.

Support Group

We meet monthly via Zoom and in person around town.

Resource Portal

Visit our Resource Portal to find all types of resources, from free educational tools and information hubs to local services and providers.

Why “Sandwiched?”

Balancing your life and the responsibilities of caregiving can be overwhelming. There are times we can feel like we are smushed into situations so big, we’re not even sure how to take the first bite.

We know what it feels like to be stressed out and overwhelmed from caregiving.

There’s no manual for caregiving, and it can be hard to find others who understand. 

That’s why we offer information and education to family caregivers, as well chances to connect with others who have traveled similar journeys.
