We’re here when you have time to talk
A safe space to talk, around the clock
Let’s keep things simple and stick with the tools you’re already using. We all check Facebook, now you can use that as a way to stay connected with other caregivers. We have several private Facebook groups for people who perform care work.
We have a main group where any and all people supporting the mental and/or physical health of another person are welcome. This is a great place to find support and answers from other caregivers any hour of the day or night. Because the main group has so many people in it (and so much activity!) it can take over your Facebook feed.
We have several topic-specific Facebook groups, too. These groups are smaller and the other caregivers in the group likely have a bit more in common with you. There’s no need to pick just one group — you can be in as many of our private Facebook groups as you’d like.
We create new groups based on who’s talking, so let us know if there’s a group you’d like to see added.
Voice of Care Work
Spousal Care: 20s, 30s & 40s
Here’s the place to talk about what it’s like to take care of your partner, husband, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, ex, or anyone else you’re in (or have been in) a romantic relationship with.
Life goes on after caregiving ends. Some of us are here to grapple with grief. Others are celebrating recoveries. All of us are forever changed by the experience.
After Caregiving: Transitions
This is a group for people who are changing or ending their role as a caregiver.
Taking care of a child (or grandchild or client) with special needs, a disability, a chronic or acute illness? Here’s the place for you to connect.
Some conditions are life-long, others are simply long lasting. Here’s a place to talk about caregiving that lasts for years.
Caring for seniors has unique challenges, especially when Alzheimer’s and dementia are involved.
Are you one of the millions of men providing caregiving support to friends, family, and clients? Join the conversation here.
Women are seen as natural caregivers, to spouses, children, parents, and other family members. If you self-identify as a woman, we welcome you here.
While all of our groups are LGBTQIAP+ inclusive, this is a space specifically for the queer community.
This is a space for supporting people’s mental and/or physical health who live far from you, whether they’re three transfers or an ocean away.
Many caregivers have mental health issues of their own. This is a group for caregivers who have been diagnosed with or identify as having mental health issues.
The best information on care work
We’re constantly scouring the web for the information that’s most helpful and interesting to people who perform care work and sharing it on our Facebook page.
Sometimes it’s the experiences of other carers, maybe it’s a great tip, or it might be the latest news impacting the lives of carers. We like to share some feel-good stories and videos, too.
We get some lively discussions going on our Facebook page. Just remember that all Facebook pages are public.
Found a great article or video that other caregivers need to see? Post it to the page!
How private is this?
Anything on a Facebook page is public.
Anything in one of our Facebook groups can only be seen by members of that group.
It sounds simple, but it can be hard to tell in your news feed. There’s an easy way to check!
Under the name of the person who posted something, there’s a time stamp and a little icon. That icon shows you who can see the post and any comments.
This little group icon means the post is only visible to members of that group:
