Emotional Support for Caregivers

Caring for a loved one with health issues can be physically and emotionally exhausting, whether you are responsible for a special-needs child, an aging parent, or a disabled partner. Caregivers tend to prioritize the daily needs of their loved one over their own emotional and physical health. Lack of sleep leaves caregivers tense and irritable, too tired to do things they enjoy. Uncertainty about the future leads to anxiety, resentment and guilt. Your level of anxiety and stress day-to-day can leave you feeling overwhelmed, more vulnerable to unhealthy behaviors and prone to physical illness. How can you move forward when you feel so depleted?

AbleTo’s Caregiver Program offers emotional and practical support to caregivers, empowering them to become better advocates for their loved ones. The program is designed for anyone caring for a child or adult with special needs—including children across the autism spectrum, and adults with a medical, developmental, or psychiatric condition. Participants receive education and resources to deepen their understanding of the caregiver role and caregiver burden. Mindfulness skills allow participants to practice acceptance and compassion, strengthening the relationship between caregiver and care receiver. At the same time, we help participants develop support networks for much needed socialization and respite.
