What we're about
Who we are
We are a group of baby boomers, family members and working adults caring for elderly parents, sick or injured spouses, neighbors, friends and other loved ones. We want to succeed in this role while maintaining our own lives and wellness.
What we do
As givers of care, many of us need support but often do not qualify for publicly-funded support programs yet are not fortunate enough to afford private help, private care management services and guidance on an ongoing, private pay basis (out-of-pocket). Our goal is to get together, support each other and get affordable group-based support, advice and guidance. We'll meet in person once a month to exchange information, learn and practice critical skills, get our questions answered, hear from experts, see practical demos, share tips and ideas, discuss solutions to common and new challenges, share reviews, get advice on maintaining our own wellness and sanity, discuss any issues of concern, explore useful strategies, organize day trips, nights-out, movies, games, dinner … and anything else that looks like fun. We'll shape the agenda together and look forward to meeting you.
