Email Discussion Group Open April 2020 Update
"Caring about others, running the risks of feeling, and leaving an impact on people, brings happiness." - Harold Kushner, Rabbi
I Connect with Family Caregivers - New Discussion Group
You probably have many questions as a family caregiver. How do I tell mom she cannot do everything on her own anymore?
Our new email discussion group helps you connect with other family caregivers, share advice, and ask questions about caregiving.
Let's say you are trying to get better at self-care, but don't know how to begin. As a member of the group, you could ask, "How can I take time for myself without feeling guilty?"
Members of the group can respond to your question. When another member responds to your question, you will simply receive a response through your email. You can also share your experiences and answer the questions of other members in the group.
