Virtual Sibling Meetups

June 16 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

Do you have a sibling with a disability? Connect with others who have a sibling with a disability and who just “get it”.

Are you the adult sibling of a person with a disability?

Please join 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 8 participants per meet up and they are free. We welcome all adults who identify as having a sibling with a disability.
