Caregiving is a universally shared experience that touches people of all ages: across gender, race, ability, orientation, culture, geography, and faith.
But how caregivers of color experience caregiving—navigating health care, accessing services, making daily decisions, and more—looks completely different.
To better understand these differences, we will:
- lean in to the caregivers of color we know and love
- seek ways to embrace and elevate caregivers of color
- expand our community to represent all caregivers & caregiving stories
Beyond #blackouttuesday, we’re committed to inclusivity and diversity in all of our Caregiving Advice conversations, connections, and content. Our team will have ongoing discussions about how this looks, with input and collaboration from our entire community.
This commitment to serving ALL caregivers through resources that represent ALL caregivers? It’s not just for this week or month. It’s part of our resource hub’s lifetime strategy, and we’ll keep learning and changing as we listen.
We’ll be more aware of our language and the lenses through which we interpret it.
We’ll make mistakes; we’ll edit, pivot, revise, and refine our language.
We’ll keep going and growing.
Because caregivers are human beings, and all caregivers deserve love, respect, resources, and hope. And we’re here for it and for them. Always.
