This is a stressful, uncertain and difficult time for everyone. Caregivers especially are faced with caring for a loved one that may be living with a life-altering diagnosis (and often children as well), without much-needed respite and support from organizations like Joy’s House.
We hope the following resources can be helpful in navigating this difficult time and keeping your own self-care and mental health at the forefront. It’s important to continue to care for yourself while also caring for those you love.
We will continue to update these resources, so please check back often!
Be safe and be well, friends.
