Caregiver Wellness Retreat for Caregivers of Alz

$1,000 goal

Campaign created 9 months ago
​My step mother suffered from Early On-set Alzheimer’s disease. My father was her caretaker for a decade. Watching him and the toll it took on his physical and mental health has been tremendous. Read more about my stepmom, Marcee, here . It has inspired me to do something about it by offering what I can. In the wellness field for over 25 years and teaching yoga for the past 14 years, I've led retreats worldwide and teacher trainings in yoga therapy and restorative yoga.  
It’s been my dream to create a retreat for caregivers and offer mindfulness tools and options for reducing stress and anxiety for themselves and for them to also utilize with their loved ones with the disease.

The retreat is FREE and solely for the caregiver. 

Every 67 seconds someone develops Alzheimer’s Disease. Even more shocking, in her 60s, a woman's estimated lifetime risk for developing Alzheimer's is 1 in 6. For breast cancer it is 1 in 11. Chances are you know someone who is grappling with this even now, just as we are. Know that you are not alone. You are most assuredly not alone. My hope is that you will help us spread the word and donate so that we can continue offering this day long retreat into wellness and self care for caregiver’s.

4 retreats in Houston, TX  and 2 Calgary, AB. Our next retreats for 2020 are:
Houston: Jan 2020

We are looking to raise $1000 to rent supplies, tables, chairs and other equipment to provide the most ease our next retreat. We are also in need of groceries for the 2 meals we provide for over 100 people for each meal.
