Circle of HOPE is an online, peer support network for family caregivers. Our support group is peer-to-peer driven, designed to gain camaraderie with others who know exactly what a caregiver role means. We believe that when you can share and learn from each other's experiences, in a compassionate and responsible way, we create a safe and extremely valuable resource to one another in this community. **Please note, any medical suggestions or information shared should always be an ongoing conversation between you, your loved one and trusted medical professionals.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
A primary caregiver’s emotional health has a direct impact on the well-being of the patient you care for. Many caregivers internalize the stress of balancing life and family after diagnosis, leaving the entire household feeling exhausted and broken. Caregivers need to have an outlet to express themselves with others who truly understand. In addition, having tools and working on your own personal development while on the journey, proves benefits for the long run.

· Emphasis on self-care
· Reduce the feeling of isolation
· Belong to a community
· Productive and meaningful conversations
· Confidence and reassurance
