Care4Giver started as an idea out of pure exhaustion.The founders, natural caregivers themselves, felt there wasn’t any time to enjoy life anymore. Many important compromises were being made, life changing moments and valuable lessons learned.
Looking back, the signs that extra support was needed were there. Like many, we ignored them. Convincing ourselves we had things “under control”, that frequent breakdowns were going to pass, we kept going. If we knew then what we know now, we could have made our journey a better one.
Having lost one parent and still caring for another, we needed a better way to handle what was ahead. Caring for others means caring for yourself as well. Getting the support, finding the services is not always easy. Where do you start, who do you ask, how do you know you are making the right choice? We’ve asked ourselves those questions over and over again. Asking wasn’t enough, we had to come up with a solution. Care4Giver is our solution.
We need it for them, we need it for us and we want it to be available for you. We wish you well on your journey. It’s not an easy one but we hope C4G can make it a little less bumpy.
Take good care.
