The Message in the Mission
We Support Caregivers, Inc. (Formerly known as Caregivers Supporting Caregivers Network) is a 501(c)(3) organization in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. Our mission is to encourage and empower individuals, who take care of their elderly loved ones, to cultivate and focus on self-care. We aim to impact these individuals locally and abroad by reminding them to make self-care a priority."Self-care is the best care because Self-care is Self Love". Self-care is the best care. Individuals who focus on developing their physical, spiritual, mental, emotional, and social well-being, ultimately can become the best version of themselves. Self-care is Self-Love.
The way we take care of ourselves is a reflection of the Love we have for ourselves and will ultimately impact how we Love others. Self-care is the intentional act of individuals making time to develop their physical, spiritual, mental, emotional, and social well-being through daily activities. Caregivers are vital to our society and several individuals are finding themselves in this role and tasked with the responsibility. This organization was created by caregivers to support and to serve other caregivers and the community. We Support Caregivers is an organization who embraces diversity and inclusion. We are committed to building our boards and teams with various skills, experience, and backgrounds. We know that being inclusive puts us in the best position to better serve caregivers locally and abroad.
Our goal is to encourage caregivers to live a balanced life by utilizing Non-Demoninational Christian based principles to motivate them to make self-care a priority. Self-care is imperative to the longevity of individuals who are caregivers, especially knowing how they have the tendency of sacrificing their own needs while trying to fulfill the needs of others. Such self-neglect can contribute to depression and suicide which are very prevalent among caregivers. Self-care is important to maintain healthy relationship with ourselves and those around us. It produces positive thoughts, enhances self-esteem, decreases stress, decreases burnout, increases happiness, and much more. We believe in order for caregivers to properly provide care to their elderly loved ones, it first starts with them properly taking care of themselves.
