The mission of
Caregivers' Hope, Inc. is achieved through four Visionary Programs.
The services that each program offers meet the needs of family caregivers.
Caregivers' Hope, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and contributions from
tax deductible donations help to cover the cost of the programs.
PLANNED RESPITE OUTINGS
Family caregivers' needs for respite such as time away from the caregiving environment; stress relief; and time with friends and family are met through the Planned Respite Outings Program. We offer planning, scheduling, coordinating, and paying for the cost of outings for the caregivers to do something that they enjoy with a family member or friend. We provide individualized outings such as seeing a play, going out to dinner, seeing a movie, an overnight stay at a local hotel, concerts, watching a local sporting event, and golfing to name a few. The outings are provided on a quarterly basis.
NEVER ALONE SUPPORT
Family caregivers' needs for education and support; better relationships with professional caregivers; to learn how to relieve stress; and to avoid health problems by taking care of oneself are addressed through our Never Alone Support Groups. The meetings are open to both professional caregivers and family caregivers, thus allowing Caregivers' Hope, Inc. to provide a forum for the two groups to develop a better understanding of the concerns and issues facing them through group discussions. Other services provided through this forum are education on caregiver issues, information about resources, and how to relax and take care of themselves. Meetings include a light meal and even an occasional pampering.
Contact us for more information about participating in one of our support groups.
Family caregivers need excellent home health care services
to avoid having stress added by those who are suppose to help relieve
some of the burden
of caregiving. Caregivers' Hope, Inc. meets this need through the Rosie
Rucker Community Service Award, which is given to the home
health care professional who provides elderly clients and their family
extraordinary care with compassion. The award celebrates and acknowledges
such a high standard of care that it raises the bar for the expected
standard of care for these professionals.
Mrs. Rucker, who was in the severe stage of Alzheimer's,
presented them with many challenges, including being combative. Both
Ms. Dixon and Ms. Butler met the challenges with a smile, providing
EXTRAORDINARY care with
COMPASSION for both Mrs. Rucker and
her daughter. They went above and beyond to provide the best care
for Mrs.Rucker, help relieve the
stress, but more importantly to not add stress. They were like
members of the family.
ANNUAL CAREGIVERS CONFERENCE
Family Caregivers need education and support. These crucial needs will
be met through a Caregivers Conference hosted by Caregivers' Hope, Inc.
The conference will offer workshops to provide education on issues that
caregivers face. They will learn about new services and products. The
conference will be open to current family caregivers, those who see themselves
as future family caregivers, and to professional caregivers as well.
