Healthy Living is not a support group. o Even though participants share experiences and support each other, it is a workshop where you learn and try new skills, and increase your ability to manage
your health. To be most effective, it is important for participants to be present and contribute in Arizona Living Well Institute all sessions. Caregiver Programs David Besst Arizona Living Well Institute Basics Family caregiver basics Family members and other informal caregivers are the backbone of our long-term care system, providing unpaid assistance to seniors with chronic illnesses, or persons with physical or mental disabilities.
Many look after both children and adults, providing: Simple supports: cooking, cleaning, home maintenance, and other chores Complex care: bathing, dressing, feeding, etc. Lifesaving measures: performing CPR, administering medications, monitoring health conditions, etc. Arizona Living Well Institute Fast Facts!
Family caregiver fast facts! Latest AARP study reports over 850,000 family caregivers active in Arizona during 2009 Total economic value of the services provided in Arizona alone exceeds $9B Family caregivers provide approximately 80% of all in-home care provided in U.S. About one-third of caregivers provide assistance to more than one person, and about one in ten to three or more people. Arizona Living Well Institute Why? Why support family caregivers? To help alleviate the toll of caregiving, family caregivers must have access to supports and services designed to safeguard their health and emotional well-being while offering protections against the financial burdens that often
accompany caregiving duties. Funds a range of support programs and services that assist family and informal caregivers who care for their loved ones, keeping them at home for as long as possible. Because without what they provide, our long term care system would collapse under the strain Arizona Living Well Institute Program Background Family Caregiver Support Program (FCSP) Title III E - enacted in the November 2000 reauthorization of the Older Americans Act.

Experiences Caregiver attending with Individual o o I think the main thing I have seen is the tremendous support the care partner gets from the group itself. One husband who came to help his wife felt very isolated. He had a buddy call from a group member each week, and this bond continued even after the program ended. The one caregiver that came was helped from the entire workshop including communication skills, medication management, physical activity, and problem-solving. The caretaker told us that the workshop gave her her life back. Individual o
attending with Caregiver An individual who came with her partner told me that she felt safer when he was with her. She wasn't afraid to try and answer or make a statement. Caregiver/Individual Partnership I feel like they are working in partnership and get a greater Arizona Living Well Institute understanding on both sides of what the person is experiencing. o Experiences/Questions?
