You're struggling to navigate so much change, riding waves of guilt, grief, sadness, and confusion, drowning in overwhelm, and so often doing it all on your own...but it doesn't have to be this way.
We have both seen firsthand how isolating and overwhelming the experience of dementia caregiving can be.
Our vision for this community is to connect caregivers to each other and to experts who are passionate about helping you, so that you have tools to cut through the chaos and confusion and know that you are not alone.
We're so glad you're here.
