Caring Better & Braver:
Caregiving is both a joy and a challenge. Most of the time, we don’t see ourselves as “caregivers”. Instead we identify as the wife, husband, parent, grandparent, child, sibling, friend or neighbor. Suddenly you realize that you’ve become a caregiver and it’s a real job – often unpaid. Millions of people find themselves in this situation every year. About 1 in 7 Americans take on the role of an unpaid family caregiver at any given time. Caring Better & Braver offers family caregivers a means to feel recognized, connected, supported and informed. You are not alone!
