SAFE SPACE for fun, friendship, and freedom for CAREGIVERS
You are taking care of everyone else: your Loved One, your spouse, your children.
It's time to give YOURSELF some attention. Your life did not end when you became a caregiver, it simply changed.
The Social Butterfly
Caregiver, community pro, and daughter of the sweetest, sassiest mom around!
My mom has always been a social butterfly. She thrives when she is meeting new people and spending time with family and friends. She always says, "I've never met a stranger!" Being the daughter of a social butterfly (and becoming one myself), I understand how important CONNECTION is.
After my mom was diagnosed with dementia, my parents moved to Virginia to stay with me in 2017. I decided working from home would be the best way to give my mom the attention she needed. I did not realize how it would isolate me from friends, family, and things I loved. I joined a virtual support group where everyone found a place to talk and vent. But I also learned that no one seemed to address the fact that along with the many sacrifices we make, caregivers lose their social life, leaving them feeling bored, disconnected, and lonely.
So I created BREATHE, a place for caregivers to connect, kickback, and rediscover the social butterfly within! Come fly with us!
