Kadamba Tree Foundation wishes everyone in our caregiver community a happy, healthy and prosperous 2014! We look forward to delivering new resources and support programs to you this year.

If you missed it, our November/December 2013 Newsletter is available here. It includes coverage of the Rosalynn Carter Institute’s annual summit. If you’re unfamiliar with RCI, check out the newsletter for more information about its excellent educational resources for caregivers.

Speaking of resources … do you use social media to access caregiving resources? There are actually several social media resources available to help caregivers. Some are in places you wouldn’t necessarily think to look.

One of our goals for 2014 is developing strategies to help family caregivers identify and navigate social media resources effectively. Stay tuned for information about an exciting new workshop series on this topic.

Meanwhile, please “like” our Facebook page or “follow” us on Twitter, then leave a comment or tweet about how you use social media as a caregiver.

As a reminder, Kadamba Tree’s mission includes providing education and support derived from caregiver interventions used around the world. Many thanks to supporters who help us access and deliver these tools to family caregivers at low or no cost.

To date, 100% of our programs have been delivered at no cost to participating family caregivers in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, Long Island, NY and beyond. Please consider helping us keep up the good work in 2014.
