Reminder About Our WAIT Buddy Program

iphone-1032781_640During caregiving, you wait. You wait during horribly stressful circumstances–a caree’s surgery or procedure or treatment. And, often, you wait alone.

To ensure you have company during a stressful wait, we launched our WAIT Buddy program just about three years ago.

WAIT means We Are In Touch. As you wait, a volunteer will send you text messages to keep in touch. The waiting could be in a hospital or clinic or doctor’s office. Or, the waiting could be at home, as you wait during your caree’s last days. Or, the waiting could be during a really long awful day, like a holiday, when you can’t wait for tomorrow to arrive.

Join our WAIT Buddy group to volunteer to be a WAIT Buddy and keep in touch via text messages while a family caregiver waits.

And, join our group when you need a WAIT Buddy. When you’re waiting, a WAIT Buddy checks in with you via text messages. When you need a WAIT Buddy, just post your request in our group. We’ll be in touch before the surgery or procedure or day to introduce you to your WAIT Buddy.

You can join the group to be both a volunteer and a recipient, volunteering when you can and asking for a volunteer when you need one. Our group is private so only members of our website can see the information shared. Not a member? Create your free Caregiving.com account and join us.

Need more ongoing support? Join our Phone Buddy group to connect with a volunteer who calls you and our Tape Buddy group to connect with a member who helps you hold it together.
