Recharge Basecamp: An Online Caregiver Community May 11, 2015

Posted by ebmc in Community CONNECTIONS, Sitting groups & Support groups.

A new on-line Caregiver Community launched May 1, 2015 called Recharge Basecamp.

Recharge Basecamp is a place where Caregivers can put on their own oxygen masks first before attending to the needs of their loved ones. My own journey as a Caregiver started a few years ago when my son went into a mental health crisis. Since then my desire to share my story, my lessons and coaching with others going through crisis and life transitions has continued to grow and evolve.

Since launching my blog Far From Paradise in 2012, I’ve spoken to hundreds of parents and caregivers who literally stumbled upon my website while trying to navigate their way through a loved ones health crisis. Each person I spoke with shared a similar story to my own, feeling like more Peer Support was needed – and yet having difficulty finding someone, anyone who was willing to talk openly about their circumstances.

What I have found is that Caregivers of all backgrounds find similar challenges as they seek out support and understanding. This forum is focused on providing a respite and community for Caregivers. The desire is to create a space that is filled with support and understanding, as well as advice, tools and processes that will include topics such as self-care, health and wellness, guided meditations, guest speakers and more.

Here is more information about the program:

  • Each week there will be a 15 minute-long Respite group coaching call focusing on relevant Caregiver topics such as: Self Care, Health and Wellness, Guided meditations, practical support tools, special guest speakers and more (Calls will be recorded and available for replay anytime)
  • Each member will have access to a PRIVATE community forum where they can connect with other caregivers sharing advice, tools and support (This will be hosted on a Private Facebook Group)
  • Each Month there will be Q & A Discussion Calls that will address topics submitted by community members
  • There will be exclusive content created just for this group

If you are a Caregiver or know a Caregiver that could benefit from this Caregivers Community, please pass along this information. You can visit http://www.rechargebasecamp.com for more details.

Thank you,
Amy White
