Extra Support on Christmas and New Year's


Extra Support on Christmas and New Year's

candles-276043_640We do our best to be a place of support every day. Sometimes, like on the holidays you may need some extra comfort. To lessen the loneliness which can intensify during the holidays, we've got these activities planned:

#coffeewithacaregiver on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day
Larry (@kc9hdp) had a great idea--that we have hold a #coffeewithacaregiver over Christmas and New Year's. Share a message of support for fellow family caregivers at 10 a.m. ET (9 a.m. CT, 7 a.m. PT) on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day with a photo of your coffee (or tea). (You are also welcome to share your message whenever you can.) Be sure to include the hashtag #coffeewithacaregiver.

36-Hour Chat Room
Because we understand you may not be where you want to be and may need a place to go, we’re opening a chat room for 36 hours for any family caregiver who needs a place to vent, share or connect over Christmas. Our virtual chat room doesn’t require gas or your heavy winter coat. If you need time away from family, if you need to connect with others who understand, if you need a friendly face who knows how it can be, please step into our Christmas chat room.

From 7 p.m. ET Christmas Eve until 7 a.m. ET on December 26, we’ll keep a chat room open here: www.caregiving.com/chat/. The chat will be open to members of Caregiving.com as well as any visitor of Caregiving.com. The chat will be unmoderated although I will stop in. (Would you like to volunteer in our chat room? Just send me an email and let me know your availability.)

During a difficult holiday, you may need a cozy place to land. Please feel free to find comfort in our chat room. We’ll keep the lights on for you.

I hope this isn't crass but how about \"cocktail with a caregiver\"? lol - sometimes at holidays we do (or I) am able to sit down and indulge in a nice glass of wine or cocktail. Might be fun to post a pic of that and any appetizer you may have to go along with it. What do yall think? Sorry I was awol for a couple of days but it's been a little cra-cra. Denise is the gratitude challenge over? I was enjoying that and bailed but I didn't mean to lol
