The Caregiver Space grew out of a personal need to connect with other caregivers and be part of a community where experiences and feelings could be shared and support could always be gotten. Understanding there are so many causes that make someone a caregiver made this site evolve into a place where a caregiver for any reason, could come and have a place to air their feelings.
We asked what caring is to you and you told us! This month, we will be creating CareCards based on your words: caregiving, as defined by caregivers.
The best way to help the caregiver in your life? Give him/her a break. Cooking, cleaning, shopping, repairs, errands-- these are all ways you can give some relief to the caregiver. We've assembled a variety of "breaks" that make perfect gifts for a beloved caregiver friend.
My hope is that I can make a difference in our lives, by calling attention to problems and needs we share–regardless of the differences in our circumstances–by providing a social network that will be a respite, a resource and a way to connect with others who share a common bond.
This is your space to...
Share your experience, strength and hope and hear fellow caregivers’ stories.
Find the resources you need to manage your daily life as a caregiver
Build your support network through family, friends, and fellow caregivers
