Support Family Caregivers You Serve

Supporting family caregivers is a 24/7 job because family caregivers work 24/7, 365 days a year. Yet, family caregiver support may be critical to the services you offer.

With our Family Care Support Program, you can provide that kind of support for the family caregivers you serve. Our program complements the services offered through:

  • Non-profit organizations, like an Area Agency on Aging
  • Health care providers, like a Hospital at Home program
  • Payers, like Medicare Advantage programs.

We partner with organizations, like a caregiving benefit organization and a consumer start-up, to offer these services. We'd love to be a part of the solutions you offer to the family caregivers you serve.

Family Care Support Program

We began supporting family caregivers in 1990 and launched one of the first online caregiving communities in 1996. We understand the support family caregivers want. We've created the Community Care Support program with their needs in mind.

Our program features:

  • A moderated, private space for the family caregivers you serve so they connect to support and have a safe space to share. Your space will live within our larger community, Caring Our Way.
  • A community personalized with your services, benefits and provider partners. We can ensure your members stay connected to your solutions.
  • Connections to our Certified Caregiving Consultants, who have personal caregiving experiences and completed our specialized training. Members can schedule a free initial consultation and then continue to use a consultant at special pricing just for your family caregivers.
  • Free courses which support family caregivers during and after their caregiving experience, including:
    • Caregiving Book Project 
    • The Daily Recovery Plan
    • Embracing Enough
    • Take Time
    • Three-Word Journaling
    • Beginning Again After Caregiving Ends
    • The Daily Healing Plan
    • Flashlight Camp: Shine the Light on Your Purpose
    • Writing for Healing After Caregiving
  • Access to our Certified Family Care Manager training at no cost. The course empowers family caregivers with the skills and know-how to manage their caregiving responsibilities.
  • Live planning sessions, which are recorded and archived, including:
    • Caregiving Recovery Plan. After an intense period, like a hospitalization or decline, you and your caree deserve a Caregiving Recovery Plan. We’ll help you make time for your own recovery after a stressful situation, difficult day or caregiving crisis.
    • Family Emergency Planning. We’ll help you create your plans for the worries and the “What If” questions that keep you up at night.
    • Hire a Family Member to Provide Care. The direct care workforce shortage means families may not be able to hire outside help. We help you create plans to hire a family member to provide care.
    • Respite In Place Planning. When you can’t leave, we’ll help you get a break right where you are. With a Respite In Place plan, you have a space to call your own in your home, your yard and your community.
    • A Plan for You After a Family Member’s Diagnosis. How do you manage after a family member’s diagnosis? Join us to talk through the impact of a family member’s diagnosis.

Our Expertise Is Our Difference

Specialized Training

Our program features our Certified Caregiving Consultants -- individuals who cared for a family member and completed our training program. Through our training, CCCs learn the communication strategy that helps reduce stress so that the conversation turns to meaningful solutions. Our CCCs can work one-on-one with your employees and lead support meetings. Our Educators, our CCCs with training in delivering presentations, can lead workshops for your employees.

Caregiving Experience

Denise, TCYTA founder, develops and leads our Community Care Support Program. Denise launched one of the first online caregiving communities in 1996 which she oversaw for the next 24 years. She sold her community in 2020 to focus on training and leadership development opportunities for family caregivers and former family caregivers. She  began helping her dad, now 91, in 2004 and cared for her mom for seven years until her death in August 2022.

Personalized Support

We can create a program that best serves your workplace. We understand your workplace has a certain culture and a need for a certain solution. In addition, we also recognize each employee has specific challenges which is why they receive personalized support from the CCC of their choice. Your employees aren't defaulted into a relationship with a CCC; they decide which one best fits their needs. While we have a variety of programs, we have a personal interest in delivering what best helps your employees.

Our Programs Work

We understand what family caregivers need which means family caregivers overwhelmingly recommend our programs. When you enroll in our training programs, you now have access to successful, proven programs that you add to your work. Our success creates your success.

We ask attendees to our programs, How likely are you to recommend our programs on a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 being the least and 10 being the most? We’re so proud to deliver programming that family caregivers will recommend:

  • 96% are strong advocates of all our programs (selected 8, 9 or 10 on the rating scale).
  • 100% are strong advocates of our Family Emergency Planning sessions (selected 8, 9 or 10).

Affordable Pricing

Moderating a 24/7 community can cost you valuable staffing resources. Yet, to connect with family caregivers, you need a community that stays open so it's available when family caregivers need it. We offer the Family Care Support Program for less than the annual cost of one staff member. To learn more, reach out to Denise via the contact information, below.

We'd love to discuss how our Family Care Support Program can best support your family caregivers.
