Lead a Care and Share


Lead a Care and Share

Care and Share™ is a moveable caregiving support group that meets those who care where they are and moves them to a better place. With Care and Share™, we meet family caregivers where they are in your personal caregiving experience and in their available personal space.

We know the challenges of trying to attend a support group in your community. We also know how valuable it can be to connect with others who understand.

So, we go to them.

Why add Care and Share™ to your business?

  • It's a simple solution to a common caregiving problem.

  • It keeps you connected to family caregivers.

  • It's an easy way for family caregivers and former family caregivers to experience your wisdom.

  • It's a great way for you to learn about potential clients so that when they become clients you hit the ground running. You won't waste time learning their story.

  • It's an awesome way to get the word out about your CCC Calling Card.

  • It's a great marketing tool for your exhibits and awareness events. Invite immediate sign-ups to visitors to your exhibit table.

  • It can be a content creation tool for you. When your meeting ends, invite Care and Share™ attendees to join you in a Facebook Live broadcast, a pop-up podcast and/or a photo. Use Anchor for a pop-up podcast.

When you lead a Care and Share™, your goal is to create a caring, supportive environment. When you do that, business will follow. Connecting with your attendees in a powerful, meaningful way is the best way for them to decide to work with you again.

Any Certified Caregiving Consultant™ can host a Care and Share™. Here's what you need:

  • A flyer to announce your Care and Share™ offering. Send the flyer details to Denise if you want to be listed on our Care and Share™ directory on Caregiving.com.

  • A calendar system for attendees to book a Care and Share™. You can offer Care and Share™ in person or virtually.

  • A goodie bag to give attendees that includes resources and your calling card. The calling card is pre-loaded with 30 minutes for each attendee. Include a flyer about additional offerings, like workshops and packages, your attendees may want to join. You also can include a NCC19 Flyer.

  • A Caregiving Wheel to spark the conversation. Use whichever wheel you really love. You also can purchase a Wheel Spinner on Amazon.

  • A price per person if your group would like to continue.

  • A price per minute if attendees would like to add more minutes to their calling card. Be prepared to show them how to use an app, like Venmo, to pay you.

  • If the group wants a way to stay connected, offer to create a group on Caregiving.com for them.

When you lead a Care and Share™, you'll want to have your attendees complete a pre- and post-meeting evaluation. Data from these surveys will help us get grants to support your work.

  • For your in-person meetings, ask attendees to complete the two-sided evaluation. Attendees complete the first side before your meeting and the second side after the meeting.

  • For your virtual meetings, ask attendees to:

    • Complete the pre-meeting evaluation before you begin your meeting. When your attendees join you in your Zoom meeting, send the link (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/cnspre) through the chat room and ask attendees to complete before you begin the meeting.

    • Complete the post-meeting evaluation after the meeting but before they leave the Zoom meeting. Again, send the link (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/cnspost) through the chat room and ask attendees to complete before leaving you.

For your calling cards:

  • Create an easy way for attendees to buy more minutes. Apps like Venmo or Cash make it easy to send money to you.

  • Use a time tracker app to manage how many minutes your clients use. Send weekly updates to let them know how many minutes they have left.
