Our mission is to create opportunities for family caregivers to find local support and shared wisdom.
Our vision is for family caregivers to
- recognize their valued role,
- have opportunities to connect with other family caregivers so they do not feel alone
- have a chance to share their knowledge and learn new ways of supporting their carees and themselves on their path to the good life.
Sandwiched KC is a nonprofit created to support family caregivers in the Kansas City metro area.
Our group is open to anyone who is caring for their parents, grandparents, spouse, or anyone who they consider family and wants to connect with others who know what they’re going through.
We share tools and resources with each other to make our lives as caregivers easier and less stressful.
We meet monthly virtually via Zoom and will be hosting a quarterly face to face meeting for family caregivers.
We currently have a closed group on Facebook for us to connect with each other in between meetings. All new members are asked to identify themselves, who they care for, what part of town they live in and must be approved by a moderator.
