We are on a mission to welcome, embrace and care for those who sacrifice their time, self and sanity to care for those they love.
We want to make sure family caregivers have the support they need to not just survive, but thrive, while caregiving.
As family caregivers ourselves, we know that family caregivers need:
Family caregivers need high quality:
- information and education to navigate their journeys,
- emotional support to cope with the stresses and challenges of caregiving, and.
- goods and services and equal access to the marketplace.
A space to learn and ask questions to take the right path
1:1 Coaching & Support
We help family caregivers on both sides of the state line navigate their caregiving journeys.
Training & Workshops
We offer workshops for family caregivers in all stages of their journey, from preparing to care to after caregiving is over. We also provide training sessions on key topics related to caregiving, like planning for respite, combating caregiver fatigue, coping with caregiver stress and burnout, and making self care work.
Contact us for more information about hosting a session or workshop at your business or organization.
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.
Opportunities to connect with others who have been in your shoes
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.
