Find out how you can boost your well being
Dear care provider,
Welcome to CARE2 - our free online well-being enhancement program for care providers and care recipients. We thank you for considering joining in.
You have a very important job. You take care of another person who cannot care for him or herself. Thanks to your help, s/he is able to stay here where they can be more active, instead of being isolated at home. While this is a very important job, it is a difficult job. We hope this program helps you to care for yourself, and also to care for the older persons you take care of
WHAT OUR PROGRAM DOES?
Our program aims to enhance your well-being by showing you how to identify and engage in meaningful, joyful activities as part of your daily routine, as little as a few minutes each day. Later on, the program will show you how to engage the care recipient in such activities as well, according to their will and abilities.
DOES IT REALLY WORK?
Research showed that as people engage in such activities – even if they have a very limited time - it lifts their spirits, and improves their relationships, productivity, and even health. For people with dementia, such activities can reduce distress and conduct behaviors. The care providers who participated in our face-to-face pilot study gave us favorable feedback and urged us to scale up the program so many care providers will benefit it. We aim to offer a free, self-led program and make it accessible from any smartphone.
WHY OUR PROGRAM IS SO IMPORTANT?
Because care work with people who got dementia can be challenging, and even distressing. Many times, your well-being is influenced by the well-being of your care recipient and vice versa.
