NFCA’s Pen Pal Program for Caregivers
The National Family Caregivers Association has started it’s own Pen Pal Program
. Designed to let people reach out to other people who are facing the same daily care-giving struggles. The Pen Pal connections that are available can be a source of daily help.
The NFCA started out with a Story Project
, your care-giving stories are also welcome. Search through the stories to find one that relates to yours and check the circle that says “Looking for a Pen Pal.
Next the “Contact” button shows that this family caregiver is willing to be a pen pal with other family caregivers. Then you’ll be asked to submit your own information which will be directly sent to the caregiver you’ve selected. A response is not guaranteed.
The goal of this program is to open up new connections to offer caregiver support, in many different situations. What a great idea to have a Pen Pal, possibly like you did when you were a child!
