THE RIGHT RESOURCES, AT THE RIGHT TIME FOR EVERY UNIQUE CAREGIVING JOURNEY

TCARE® care consultants identify caregivers’ risk of stress and burnout and equip family caregivers with the right resources and services based on tailored care plans for every unique caregiving journey.

 

TCARE® is based on 35 years of research by an international renowned researcher in the field of caregiving. TCARE® is recognized as the only evidence-based family caregiver support program (FCSP) in the country by the U.S. Administration on Community Living and has been proven to reduce caregiver stress and clinical depression, delay or prevent out-of-home placement of the care recipient, reduce hospital stays & readmissions as well as increase uplifts or positive feelings associated with caregiving.  These positive impacts lead to significant decreases in healthcare costs.  TCARE® has been implemented in 19 states by over 250+ organizations & over 400+ care managers to serve over 50,000+ family caregivers.


How will the TCARE® program at WyCOA help you?

Extensive research has shown that the TCARE® program can:
 
¨ Lower your stress
 
¨ Prevent or reduce depression
 
¨ Increase confidence and skills
 
¨ Reduce conflicts with your family member
 
¨ Help you communicate with other family members
 
¨ Improve your health
 
¨ Improve care for your family member
 
¨ Extend the time that you are able to care for your family member at home

How does TCARE® work at WyCOA & how do you get started?

Every family caregiver starts with a prescreen to identify their level of stress & caregiving burnout risk. Based on the results, they may be connected with a certified TCARE® care manager— who uses the TCARE® system to create a tailored care plan to support their caregiving journey.

Our comprehensive assessment takes into account not only the “what & how much” of daily caregiving but the emotional stress, identity change & other key social determinants of health that are proven to be leading indicators of caregiver burnout.

TCARE® works with healthcare organizations, agencies & institutions to impact the lives of every caregiver & care-receiver.
