Breathing Spaces allows you the opportunity to speak your truth in a caring community of people that "get it." Whether it is crying, laughing, venting or finding resources, this platform enables members to realize they are not alone.
Our walks were created by and for family caregivers. These 1-hour long opportunities to connect with other caregivers allows you to gain insight, referrals, and information to help you as you move along your caregiving journey. Held in a serene environment, these give you the ability to converse with others that are walking along the caregiving path with you which relieves stress and allows you to breathe.
By providing valuable resources, webinars/seminars, and inspiration through our social media outreach, we give family caregivers the ability to feel supported and to talk or to just ‘be’ with people who understand.
As a former family caregiver, Cyndi understands the roller coaster of emotions that people go through.
She was living with and caring for her Mom who had arthritis and been through two rehab stays after bouts of pneumonia as well as her brother, who suffered from heart problems. She was an overwhelmed, stressed out family caregiver who was not taking care of herself. She joined a walking program for family caregivers through local health organizations and began to realize she was not alone on her journey.
Ultimately taking over the program herself, Cyndi began to clearly understand the needs of family caregivers and developed programs to help a growing population in need of support. She founded Breathing Spaces to create an even more diversified network helping others going through similar circumstances.
Breathing Spaces Online Private Family Caregiver Support Group
Breathing Spaces Family Caregivers Support Group on Facebook is a private group set up for you to connect with other family caregivers regardless of who you are caring for or your/their location. This group is not visible to anyone else and people can join only with an invitation. This allows discussions to happen with others to give you support whether it is emotional or need for resources. It is our hope this gives you an additional way to B-R-E-A-T-H-E and know you are not alone on your journey.
