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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
All caregivers are welcome here. This is our most active group and a great place for 24/7 support.
Some conditions are life-long, others are simply long lasting. Here's a place to talk about caregiving that lasts for years.
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.
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.
Women are seen as natural caregivers, to spouses, children, parents, and other family members.
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. But 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 icon means the post is only visible to members of that group:
And this little icon means the post and any comments are public:
