Our community is constantly changing and adapting

Join the conversation in our forums

Our private forums provide us with a safe space to connect with other people who get it, support each other, and share our hard-earned experience with each other.

Join the conversation on Facebook

We have several private Facebook groups that are a safe space to connect with other people like you

All Caregivers

All caregivers are welcome here. This is our most active group and a great place for 24/7 support.

Caregiving Parents

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.

Spousal Care

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.

Eldercare

Caring for seniors has unique challenges, especially when Alzheimer’s and dementia are involved.

Young Caregivers

Young caregivers are often left out of the conversation. Here’s a place for people under 35 to share their experiences and support each other.

Long-term Care

Some conditions are life-long, others are simply long lasting. Here’s a place to talk about caregiving that lasts for years.

After Caregiving

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.

LGBTQIAP+

All of our groups are LGBTQIAP+ inclusive, but this is a great space to share issues specific to the queer community, including polyamory and supporting someone in transition.

Caregiving Daughters

Women are seen as natural caregivers, to spouses, children, parents, and other family members.

Caregiving Sons

Are you one of the millions of men providing caregiving support to friends, family, and clients? Join the conversation here.

Our online magazine has honest accounts of the experiences of other caregivers and wisdom from experienced caregivers from all walks of life.

Connect caregivers with resources

This is an excellent page. I never imagined I would become a caregiver for my father 1 1/2 years ago. Thanks for all the support you provide.

 

Jessica Williams

I want to thank you, for all the support given through this group, there are times I felt like giving up and that no one understood the scope of caregiving, and the toll it takes on a person and a relationship, I am so grateful for your kindness and the support and understanding I get from reading posts on here and feeling like I am not alone after all.

 

Nora Ford

There are always good and bad days. I try to remain positive but I can get so frustrated sometimes. Then I always feel guilty after I get frustrated. I’m glad I found this page. The motivational quotes and articles always help.
