Share In Helping One Person Everyday

The (50+) Community Bridge Connection - TODAY'S FAMILY CAREGIVER

SHARE IN H.O.P.E. is serving to put the "heart" back into the caring for others on a daily basis. 


Our mission affords us the opportunity to encourage and inform; while helping to foster a much needed sense of community kinship vital in supporting the Family CareGiver during a very special journey that is making an invaluable 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 well-cared-for, encouraged, appreciated, respected, and informed, it also benefits those that are personally dependent upon her/him for much needed patience, compassion and kindness while helping with the routine of life day-to-day; long-term care and other special considerations.             

"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. 

Today's Family CareGiver
(It Still Takes A Village)

Regardless of how you became 
(or will become) a CareGiver always remember that you are not alone!  
Many of us  are on this special journey of caring and helping others when they need us the most!

> Adult Children caring for aging or ill parents; and/or grandparents
> Spouse caring for an ill or disabled spouse
> Parents caring for a child with special needs
> Adult Siblings caring for an ailing brother or sister
> Friend / Neighbor caring for a friend 
> Parents rearing children 
> Grandparents 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.
