CaringOn Ambassador Toolkit
Help Us Build Our network!
CaringOn Ambassadors have a deep and meaningful understanding of the power of our mission – to care for caregivers. They are those who help us recognize that caregivers need care themselves and are often the most ignored part of the healthcare equation. CaringOn Ambassadors are individuals who help us provide a special gift of care to the people that take care of others on a daily basis. What is a gift of care? Time to take a break from caregiving responsibilities so that a caregiver can “recharge, refresh, and renew” and do something wonderful for themselves – get a massage, go to dinner and a movie, take in a ballgame, stay overnight in a hotel overlooking the water, doing something that gives them a chance to take a break from caregiving and will spark joy and a feeling of wellbeing in them again.
Who are CaringOn Ambassadors?
Potentially anyone who gives care. But more specifically, those that would like to promote CaringOn’s mission of caring for caregivers. They are our CaringOn alumni, our friends, our professional colleagues who resonate with our mission and would like to get involved.
How does an Ambassador promote the CaringOn mission?
Help us build our network of care providers at hospitals, clinics, hospices, rehab and wellness centers by connecting us with those that work closely with caregivers – doctors, nurses, social workers, nurse navigators, etc. Nominate a caregiver who is in need of care. Promote CaringOn on social media. Donate to our cause by underwriting gifts of care – by negotiating in kind or discounted products or services from a vendor or donating money that will help us provide more gifts of care to our caregivers.
CaringOn Ambassadors are a part of our extended family and your support and hard work to care for caregivers will help sustain CaringOn now and forever.
Nominate a Caregiver
Benefits the Caregiver: Taking care of a loved one with a cancer diagnosis can pose significant challenges to the individual providing the care. The constant responsibility can take a physical, mental, and emotional toll on caregivers. Caregivers often need a break so they can return to their labors of love with renewed energy, attitude, and desire.
Benefits the Patient: Scientific research shows that “doing good” for others may be a key to better physical and mental health and may even help you live longer. For cancer patients, saying thanks and giving back to their caregivers helps to boost their self-esteem and provide a sense of purpose.
Caregiver nominations can be submitted via our website or by mailing or emailing the form. Mailed forms can be sent to PO Box 851, Brooklandville, MD 21022 and emailed forms can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
