Opportunities like these don’t happen every day!

We envision the STC model being integrated into person-centered care programs in hospitals around the country and woven into of the curriculum for students of social work and nursing. To make these goals a reality we need to step up the level of STC awareness among caregivers, professionals and institutions to confirm what this RN had to say about STC.
“Such a wonderful experience in caring for our fellow human beings.
Outstanding example of high quality human service.”
In order to accomplish all of this we need your support to cover the cost of conference/travel expenses to attend, present and network at the targeted conferences below.
Please realize that opportunities to present at Planetree and NHCGNE are limited and very competitive and being selected as a presenter is a VERY big deal!

OUR FOUR OPPORTUNITIES

Service Unites Conference – Points of Light
Atlanta, GA June 17-20 – HUGE National Volunteers conference
2018 Planetree International Conference on Person-Centered Care
Boston, MA October 7-10 – presenter
Third Annual National Caregiving Conference, CareGiving.com
Chicago, IL November 8-10 – to receive an award, participate on panel
National Hartford Center of Gerontological Nursing Excellence

STC Conferences!

We have several great opportunities during the rest of this year to spread the word about our evidence-informed STC model and to network with brand new audiences. My attendance at the important conferences listed below would allow me to make valuable connections that could lead to significant visibility and progress for STC and our organization.
However, we do need your support to enable us to attend.

Looking for MS Caregivers

Is looking for MS Caregivers to Get Engaged
in Merck’s Global MS Care Partner Initiative
Deadline to Participate: June 22, 2018
In partnership with IACO and Eurocarers, EMD Serono/Merck KGaA has launched a global advocacy project – MS Care Partner Initiative – to spotlight the common challenges of the carers or care partners providing care to persons living with multiple sclerosis (MS). One of the primary goals of the initiative is to address the availability and provision of supports and services to MS Care Partners, as well as the means of guidance on the standards of self-care and care for the care recipient.
To capture all the important aspects of caregiving for a person with MS, EMD Serono/Merck KGaA invites case studies/real-life stories and experiences from a variety of carers within the MS community (spouse, parent, child, carers of diverse cultural, linguistic, and other backgrounds, etc.) to be featured in a global MS survey report and/or the ‘By Day, By Night’ campaign. As part of the initiative, both positive and negative stories are welcomed, in order to illustrate the realities and the challenges of being an MS care partner. If you would like to be a part of this very important global project and would like to have your story featured in the report, please contact the team at FleishmanHillard Public Relations & Digital Marketing Agency at merck.care.partner@fhflondon.co.uk by June 22.

STC 2017 End of year Accomplishments and Appeal


Dear Share The Care Supporters,
Recently at an event, a working caregiver stopped by our STC table. Intuitively, I sensed that this particular woman was truly in desperate need of help.  At first she was reluctant to engage in much conversation and was readying herself to walk away.  So I took a chance and looked into her eyes and asked “can I give you a hug?”  It was that hug that blew open the dam. “I’m so overwhelmed.  I’ve been taking care of both my mother and my father for over 15 years.  My sister is of no help.” It was also clear that a lot of time had gone by since anyone had asked her how she was doing or took the time to listen to the enormous responsibilities she was carrying. This tiny demonstration of concern cracked open a door to a discussion with her about self-care, asking for help and how STC works.
Every day the number of caregivers is increasing and they NEED to know about STC. Our grassroots, evidence-informed model continues to prove its effectiveness as a compassionate solution to help caregivers everywhere. It is one of the most rewarding solutions to the caregiving crisis especially since STC gives novice caregivers a way to learn how to be a caregiver in the company of others, many of whom may be veteran caregivers.
We Need Your Support. There are important conferences we need to attend, STC materials to be developed and printed and STC books purchased to send to individuals and organizations that can raise the visibility of our cause.  Funds can help us enlist the services needed to do a webinar, for tech support, and to work on developing collaborations. It is also critical to have funds available when opportunities strike. We have requests for a Spanish and French edition of STC and are seeking publishers in other countries.  Do you know any?
If you have never made a donation to ShareTheCaregiving, Inc. before, please make this the year you start.
If you are part of an STC group, or are helped by one, please reflect on your experience and the value of having a ready-made plan to organize and sustain your group. We need you to TAKE ACTION NOW to back our work generously this year. A meaningful tax-deductible donation of $100, $500 or $1,000 or more would help sustain our efforts.

New York Post seeking STC group helping a cancer patient.

NY Post  Header / Logo

This is to be an article on the people you can surround yourself with to help you with your diagnosis/treatment/recovery. A kind of “it takes a village” look at cancer. It may be something that people end up doing intuitively, but we hope this will help those who need some structure after receiving scary news, or fill in the holes for others. I’ll want to talk to you about your “team,” which may include a doctor network; a bff; a patient advocate (sometimes provided by hospital if you ask); a personal advocate to make and take you to appointments; a chemo buddy; a recovery group.

Requirements: 
Lives in the tri-state area and kicked cancer with the help of a team of friends/advocates/doctors with specific goals/duties
Send to:
Heidi Mitchell, New York Post
