The Caregiving Club offers consulting services and educational content with a message to empower caregivers to prepare to care. In the same way that our society is more in tune with planning for our retirement, caregiving is a life event few will miss. It is easy to miscalculate the toll it can take physically, emotionally and financially.

Empower family caregivers on how to balance self-care while caregiving.
Caregiving Club will improve the health and wellness of family caregivers nationwide by raising public awareness for caregiving and providing practical information to caregivers via expert advice and guidance delivered through media outlets, social media, corporations, organizations and other service providers who reach America’s 65 million caregivers.
Founded in 2011 by Sherri Snelling, former chairman of the National Alliance for Caregiving and a veteran of the health care and technology industries, Caregiving Club is putting the spotlight on this life event that 65 million Americans currently face.

As the oldest of our population continues to grow over the next 2o years — with the first of the 78 million Baby Boomers just turning 65 this year – few are prepared for the silver tsunami heading towards us.
Essentially, our society will have more parents to care for than children. This will impact families, the workplace and our lives as we know it today. As we live longer, caring for a spouse, a partner, a parent or other older loved one, caregiver will be a role that many of us will play.
We also cannot overlook the challenges facing the Sandwich Generation – those caring for older loved ones while still raising children.

Caregiving Club looks at caregivers holistically in terms of their lives and lifestyles.
