Care 4 the Caregivers does something no other charity does, it focuses only on the health and wellness of the caregivers raising a child with a disability. Why? Because when people are take on a caregiving role it comes with additional stressors other parents don’t have. Caregivers must learn how to navigate different systems of care, take their children to various doctor and therapy appointments, quit their careers, and often become isolated from their friends and families. This isolation usually leads to PTSD-like symptoms which has negative consequences for the caregiver, and for the child. 

Our mission at Care 4 the Caregivers is to help those who are often overlooked. To provide quality emotional, physical and educational support to these caregivers who themselves face tremendous physical and emotional challenges. They must keep themselves healthy so that they can provide their children with the care they need to thrive.

We would like to invite you to help us solve the problem of caregiver burnout. Together, we can continue to further the advances in specialized services and support that empower the caregivers of children with special health care needs and disabilities.  We can grow our advocacy efforts, our events in the community, and continue expanding our educational resources platform.
