IT IS OUR MISSION

to provide practical and emotional support for family caregivers of the terminally ill, disabled children, adults and seniors in order to give those caregivers support with their own health and wellness.

The effects of caring for a chronically or terminally ill family member are rapidly becoming a public health concern for the family caregiver. There is an average of 44 million caregivers in this country alone, providing unpaid emotional and physical support.

Many of these caregivers are ill prepared to care for the family member, often at risk to their own health. These caregivers suffer from emotional, mental and physical ailments arising from the stressful nature of caring for others.

Mental Effects Can Cause

•  Increased substance abuse (alcohol, prescription drugs, illicit substances)
