Voya & No Barriers are committed to family caregivers: find resources and donate

No Barriers USA announced today that it is teaming up with Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA) for National Caregivers Day on Feb. 18, to celebrate the often overlooked caregiver community that is a focus of its Voya Cares® program — a leader in making a positive difference in the lives of people with disabilities and special needs and their caregivers by providing advocacy, resources and solutions.

Voya Financial was recognized as Caregiving.com’s 2020 Caregiving Visionary Caregiving Organization of the Year for its support and advocacy of the disabilities community through its Voya Cares® program. This includes raising awareness and making a positive impact on the lives of family caregivers through support of the No Barriers Family Caregiver program.

“We’re proud to be working with No Barriers to bring awareness and support to the large, but often unrecognized and underserved, community of 53 million caregivers across America,” said Rodney O. Martin, Jr., chairman and CEO, Voya Financial, Inc. “Caregivers face unique challenges when it comes to balancing the care that they provide for their loved ones with their own well-being. No Barriers provides a supportive community and tools to encourage self-care — so that caregivers can improve their own quality of life.”

Through its tailored programming, No Barriers, a registered 501(c) nonprofit organization, offers virtual and in-person, all-expenses-paid events that offer a deliberate break to caregivers for often forgotten self-care — offering space to build friendships and expand community, recharge and connect, feel empowered and rediscover themselves. “It’s easy to get lost as a caregiver…I had forgotten who I was as a person,” said a retreat participant. “The No Barriers retreat helped me find a huge portion of myself and continue my journey toward healing myself.”

In addition to No Barriers programming, caregivers have access to tools and resources for care information from power partner Caregiving.com. Leveraging technology, Caregiving.com's recent updates to their website experience bring a new level of focus to the individual needs of family caregivers who can find tips and support, advice and community, the latest news, and more on the site. "No Barriers is one of the preeminent providers of caregiver respite retreats. We are grateful to be working together to share their expertise with our community and expand our coverage of respite-related topics," says Caregiving.com Editor-in-Chief Christina Best.

Apply for a caregiver retreat or nominate a caregiver on their behalf by March 18th.
