For Caregivers

Dear Caregiver,

If your life is anything like mine, the appointments that fill your calendar are  aimed at the needs of your loved one. But their illness or injury has also had an unmeasurable impact on your life and wellbeing. Caregiver, I want you to know: you are part of the story and you, too, need and deserve support.

The Negative Space is dedicated to meeting your needs. Here you will never be bright-sided or dismissed. You will find others whose days look like yours. You will feel seen, heard, understood, supported, and less alone.

I’m glad you’re here.

LISTEN TO THE “IN SICKNESS” PODCAST

Listen in as Allison Breininger, creator of The Negative Space, and Justin Bajema, both millennial caregivers for their chronically ill spouses, speak honestly about what life is like when there are more days spent in sickness than in health.

JOIN the ONLINE SUPPORT GROUP

The Negative Space offers bi-monthly virtual caregiver support groups at no cost, which are open to current and former caregivers of all types. In these sessions hard things are not sugar coated and experiences are not bright sided. Join the mailing list to be alerted when each session is scheduled.

benefit from 1:1 support

The Negative Space offers 1:1 virtual coaching. These hour long sessions provide caregivers with a space for venting, processing, and/or problem solving with a listener who gets it and won’t bright side or judge. Sessions are $100, but a sliding scale is available. No one will be turned away for an inability to pay.

Contact The Negative Space for more information, to schedule a complimentary 15 minute meeting, or to set up a 1:1 session.
