One more way to get support, 24/7.
You’re already on Facebook, right?
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.
A safe space to talk, around the clock
We have several private Facebook groups just for caregivers.
We have a main group where any and all caregivers 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. We create new groups based on who’s talking, so let us know if there’s a group you’d like to see added.
There’s no need to pick just one group — you can be in as many of our private Facebook groups as you’d like.
Not all relationships survive caregiving. This is a group for people who are estranged or distanced from someone they once provided support to.
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 caregiving
Sometimes it’s the experiences of other caregivers, maybe it’s a great tip, or it might be the latest news impacting the lives of caregivers. 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:
And this little globe icon means the post and any comments are public:
