Here is the description and rules for the private Empowered Family Caregiver Facebook Group:
This Empowered Family Caregiver group provides support, community, hope, empowerment, and resources for family caregivers. We’ll periodically go live with coaching and tips here in the group. If you’ve ever taken care of a parent, grandparent, or other loved one, you know the tremendous toll caregiving can take physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and financially for all involved.
When you click HERE to join our group, you’ll be prompted to answer three questions. Once you answer these questions, we’ll approve your request!
You need to know that:
1. You are NOT alone in this journey.
2. Whatever you are feeling is 100% valid.
3. The exhaustion, overwhelm and stress IS temporary; even if it feels like caregiving will never end.
4. You absolutely, positively MUST take care of yourself to alleviate #CaregiverStress and be best able to care for others. I can show you how to do this!
We primarily focus on helping #FamilyCaregivers with these things:
1. Dealing with the pool and wave of emotions like impatience, anger, sadness, etc. so you can effectively deal with life responsibilities.
2. Helping you be the best advocate for your loved one including how to keep them safe to minimize worry.
3. Empowering you to cultivate self-care so you stress less.
4. Creating and hone your family legacy so you and your loved ones have peace.
