Empowering Caregivers through Improved Support
Caregivers experience some level of stress and depression, creating a significant need for caregivers to obtain resources and support. Yet, caregivers often put their own needs for support aside as they focus their time and effort on the patient.
Caregivers are very diverse in terms of the type and quantity of tasks they undertake, the duration of time over which they serve in the role, the costs they incur, and the benefits that caregivers perceive as a consequence of their caregiving role. This diversity in the caregiving experience means that the type of support and resources that each caregiver needs is unique and likely to change over time.
If caregivers are to benefit fully from support services it is important to match resources and services to their unique situation. ” Essentially caregivers will not use services that they do not perceive as needed and the perception of need is influenced by characteristics of the caregiver, the care receiver, and the provider” explained Jessica Jacobs, COO of TCARE®. Treatment Diaries is answering this need by providing anonymous, private, and free virtual support to caregivers anytime of the day as a resource suggested by care managers during the assessment and consultation process.
TreatmentDiaires.com is a digital health care platform designed to connect caregivers and those on a journey with illness through online health related conversations, captured in personal diaries. This partnership addresses the unmet needs of the caregivers early in their caregiving journey and throughout their journey using a consultation process that identifies individual’s needs and creation a plan of caregiver support that is tailored to those needs. Together, TCARE® and Treatment Diaries will uniquely meet caregivers at the intersection of social and health providing a safe and completely private experience with the type of support needed most from the people who understand caregiving best!
“In sickness and in health, individuals always feel better knowing others care.” Amy Ohm, Founder of TreatmentDiaries.com also went on to say, “Social support and valuable resources in partnership with TCARE® is the perfect complement to our mission at Td - Keeping health private so you can be social about everything and sharing personal experiences about caregiving to improve the lives of those who can relate. It is both an honor and a privilege to partner with a purpose driven organization that cares so much for those in need. We are incredibly grateful for this partnership with TCARE®!”
