TONIGHT - Virtual Peer Support Meetups for Adult Siblings of a Person with a Disability

There are still a few spaces in tonight's meetup for adult sibling of a person with a disability?

https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/virtual-sibling-meetups-tickets-127796959145

Our virtual sibling meetups for facilitated conversations to share our experiences, learn from each other and gain new perspectives about our sibling journey.

Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, people with disabilities have been disproportionately struggling with isolation, poor physical and mental health. For many, the assistance they need for daily living is changed, reduced or gone entirely.

Many adult siblings of people with disabilities have found their sibling relationship, including any responsibilities, has changed. As a result, our worries and emotions have also changed. We may be experiencing more anxiousness and guilt when we can’t visit with our sibling in the same way we once did, we may have new worries about future planning and we may have considerable stress from increased caregiving responsibilities.

Virtual meetups provide social, emotional and practical peer support for siblings.

These meetups are small with up to 12 participants per meet up and they are free. We welcome all adults who identify as having a sibling with a disability.
