Your Partner in Caregiving
CaringKind President & CEO
Happy Summer! Hope you are staying safe and healthy.
It has been a busy summer at CaringKind as we continue to create and implement new programs to support family caregivers and persons with dementia. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
I had the pleasure of speaking with a daughter of a parent who was recently diagnosed. After going to the doctors with her dad, she was wondering where to turn. She had many questions and concerns. Her friend and colleague, who owns a yoga wellness program, told her about CaringKind.
The daughter learned that this was what was needed:
- My entire family needs to be involved in virtual support groups.
- My family needs to meet with a Dementia Specialist so they can begin to understand any financial aspects of the diagnosis and paperwork needed for the future.
- There are other treatment options for my dad - not only physical support, but emotional support to help him through this difficult diagnosis.
These needs she discovered are the core of what we do. Please visit our website: caringkindnyc.org/programsandservices to learn about all the new programs and services that are now available at CaringKind. It is our mission to work hard for caregivers and persons with dementia today while hoping that tomorrow we can end this disease.
What can you do to help someone who was recently diagnosed? Let them know they are not alone and that CaringKind is ready to guide them every step of the way.
Speaking of steps on a journey, the CaringKind Alzheimer’s Walk is on September 25th in Coney Island and October 23rd in Central Park. Please join us as we walk united as one community in honor of our loved ones and in celebration of all that we accomplish together.
See you there!
