Family & Friend Caregiver Support Group
Updated: Apr 6, 2019
Being a family or friend's caregiver is physically and emotionally demanding. You’re handling all this while at the same time dealing with your everyday life!
When you’re caring for a family member or partner, it’s easy to feel like you need to handle everything on your own. The truth is, caring doesn’t have to be a one-person, all-or-nothing role and creating your own support network is not failing – sometimes it’s the most sensible thing to do.
Having emotional support is key to navigating life's challenges
As a family caregiver it is important to:
• Balance caring for yourself and your loved one.
• Take time to think about your own physical and psychological health.
• Identify when you are beginning to feel overburdened.
• Embrace the positive aspects of caregiving.
• Seek help and support when you need it.
Family Caregiver Support Group
Many people have reported increased well-being after connecting with other carers. It has shown them they’re not alone and helped them make sense of what is happening. Other carers can be invaluable resources for practical advice and tips based on their own experiences. They understand your experiences and help you feel like you’re not alone. That's why we've created a support group for individuals who have a family member or friend that is experiencing mental health issues or other health concerns as brain injury, Alzheimer's disease or dementia.
