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.  TCARE® 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.
