“As Caregivers, we put out so much, and sometimes we need to nurture ourselves before we bottom out.  At the time I went to the Caregiver’s Retreat I was hanging on by a thread, and it was absolutely revitalizing.  I would so recommend this retreat to other Caregivers!”

– Carolyn Main, Caregiver’s Retreat 2014 

About the Retreat

Being the primary support for a loved one with a disability can be an all-consuming and sometimes overwhelming experience. Some of us feel isolated, exhausted, and disconnected from ourselves outside of our caregiving roles. The Covid19 Pandemic has taken a toll over the past 18 months, and it has not been an easy road to travel for many caregivers.

This special weekend retreat was developed by and for family caregivers to allow for the chance to relax, rejuvenate and connect with other caregivers in a beautiful setting.

We hope that this year’s retreat offers caregivers a chance to take a much-deserved break from your busy lives, and to reflect, relax and unwind. There will be no expectation of you other than to enjoy yourself.
