Build Your Trusted Circle with this Free Caregiver App

| Season 3 | Episode 7 |


In this episode: Amy Chidester, Director of Strategic Aging Initiatives at WayWiser, shared about the premier caregiver app that allows you to create a private space to connect with your family, paid caregivers, or close friends within a Trusted Circle so you can more easily manage care for a loved one. Tune in to hear about WayWiser’s plans to offer an all inclusive financial security platform for caregivers.

Evan’s news segment comes from an online discussion hosted by the Washington Post, titled: “Carolyn Hax: Overworked, burnt-out caregiver looks for ways to be kind again.” This sheds light on the dilemma caregivers face with limited time for self care and not having an emotional outlet - leading to unkind “nasty” behavior and then a feeling of resentment towards those they are caring for.


Savy shared that Gimme a Break is continuing a 10 part series in their weekly support sessions around the theme of PAUSE. Last night the discussion was about the “E” in PAUSE for exhaustion and that certainly all caregivers can relate to not having a good night's sleep in what feels like forever! Savy welcomes all caregivers to these free, life-changing support sessions.
