It is a safe and non-judgmental virtual community for stressed out caregivers who want to find balance, resources & help so they can reclaim their time and master strategies for living a fullfilling and gratifying life in their multiple roles as caregivers.
Are you a caregiver? Do you know a caregiver? They live in your city, perhaps on your street or even next door. They serve with courage, perseverance, patience and love. Some give 24 hours a day, with days blending into weeks, months and years.
There are family caregivers quietly caring for loved ones at home – over 66 million family caregivers in the United States alone – caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia; or mental, emotional or physical disabilities. The overwhelming responsibility can be very difficult and emotionally wearing on the caregiver. Without some type of support the caregiver may end up with his or her own health failing. Stress, guilt, anger, depression and withdrawal from family and friends are some of the emotional reactions that leave caregivers feeling helpless and alone. Many caregivers give up employment to attend to their loved ones’ needs, causing financial stress as well.
Caregivers Relief Network was born out of a desire to lend support, resources, and training about for those caregivers who want to Care, Live Well & Thrive!
