We look forward to having you join us for the Day of Respite, created for YOU, the family caregiver!
Hope Grows understands that family caregivers need a break away from the tasks of providing care. Our mission was founded for caregivers to focus on self-care, empowerment, and a change of perspective. This CELEBRATING YOU! event certainly lives up to its promise of a stress free day! Our caregiver guests will continue to receive a wide range of activities to participate in, be fed with delicious foods with coffee, tea, and beverages throughout the day, and to focus on self and self-care.
Caregiver attendees expressed great appreciation for the opportunity to be there and to have experienced the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden. In addition to all the fun and relaxing activities that caregivers participated with, they were able to explore the trails, gardens, and woodlands that are a part of the Garden’s 60 developed acres.
Some other responses that Hope Grows received from guests at past Celebrating You! events.
“This was absolutely perfect and an amazing blessing. Love your hearts.”
“This was a much needed day!! Caregiving is physically and mentally exhausting.”
“I am so impressed with everything and everyone involved.”
Caregivers can receive resources for their needs as well as their care recipient's needs. Hope Grows offers Think Caregiver, a program where caregivers receive check-in phone calls and simple ‘self-care’ suggestions. Other services include the Root of Good Care Counseling Services for when caregiving becomes depressive, anxiety provoking, or when burnout or compassion fatigue occurs. Support is available through the mental health therapy program. Hope Grows also offers Therapeutic Respite, Mindful, positive, and holistic activities, that are held at various times throughout the year, including Celebrating You!.
