THANKFUL THURSDAY: – a must-have resource for all family caregivers

LOGO: A few months after I started this blog, I found That point in time changed the course my caregiving trajectory in a way that I never expected. was launched by Denise M. Brown, who has cared for many, in 1996 to help those who care for a family member or friend. is community of supportive individuals caring for for parents, spouses, siblings, grandparents and anyone considered family.

Among the awesome things has to offer are blogs of family caregivers, weekly words of comforts, daily chats, podcasts and free webinars.

I love because they have a ton of resources that you can consume at your own pace and on your own time.

Chats are hosted every day at three times a day at 9 a.m. ET (8 a.m. CT, 7 a.m. MT, 6 a.m. PT), 2 p.m. ET (1 p.m. CT, Noon MT, 11 a.m PT), and 9 p.m. ET (8 p.m. CT, 7 p.m. MT, 6 p.m. PT). Talking to other caregivers has been crucial to me for my survival, and this is a great way to be able to do that. They also host focused chats based on your unique caregiving experiences weekly.

They also have a wealth of webinars. There is something for everyone at, no matter which stage you might find yourself on in your caregiving journey.

On top of all THAT, also provides training, coaching, and technical assistance to family caregivers, professionals, groups, and basically any organization looking to build their capacity to serve and support family caregivers.

Among one of these opportunities is the Certified Caregiving Consultant™ training offered at I began the program last fall. As a result of my participation in the CCC program, I was invited to share my personal caregiving journey as a millenial caregiver at’s Second Annual National Caregiving Conference in Chicago in November. Everyone there was so warm and kind and respectful. When I went to that conference, I felt like like I finally found a place where I fit in and was understood.

Earlier this year, I completed the CCC program (More on this next week when I talk about Victories!).

Since I joined the community and became a CCC, I connected with an awesome tribe of fellow family caregivers, from all parts of the country and a wide variety of talents and gifts.
