Share In Helping One Person Everyday

The "Family CareGiver" Community Bridge @ www.hopewithExtraneeds.com

SHARE IN H.O.P.E. is serving to put the "heart" back into the caring for others on a daily basis. Our mission not only helps to encourage and inform, but also helps to foster a much needed sense of community and kinship which is vital in supporting the Family CareGiver during this very special journey; making a worthwhile difference in the life of a love one. 

As an "up-close and personal" 

non-profit outreach initiative and viable communication resource hub, the core vision of H.O.P.E. is to connect with the multi-generational Family CareGiver community in a unique and supportive way.

We believe that when the 

Family CareGiver is encouraged, well-cared-for, and informed it also benefits the love one that is personally dependent upon her/him for patience and kindness when helping with daily care needs.             

"There are only four kinds of people in the world: those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, 

and those who will need caregivers."  

Rosalyn Carter

____________________________________

The role of CareGiver is shared by many; but is in no way a one-size fit all journey; each step along the way is a personalized heart matter. 

Nonetheless, the spirit of caring is shared and familiar to all; and the emotions tug at the heart, as those receiving our care also change our lives in many ways. 

The Making of a
"Family" CareGiver

Regardless of how you became    (or will become) a CareGiver, always remember that you are not alone!  

> Adult Children caring for aging or ill parents, and/or grandparents
> Spouse caring for an ill or disabled spouse
> Parents caring for an ill or disabled child
> Adult Sibling caring for an ailing brother or sister
> Friend or Neighbor caring for a friend / Professionals caring for someone’s love one
> Parents rearing children / Grandparent(s) rearing grandchildren

What are some of the responsibilities of a CareGiver? 


The tasks and responsibilities are many and very important, and often include: financial and emotional support; providing daily personal care, special needs, meals, medical care, household management, supervision, errands, paying bills, transportation, doctor appointments. 

The daily scheduling alone consumes much of the personal time of a CareGiver, and often limits opportunity for outside quality time for positive social interaction with others.
