Explore evidence-based programs that support caregivers of those with chronic conditions.
A series of small-group self-management workshops. Groups meet for six weeks, once a week, for approximately 2.5 hours. All programs are led by a team of trained leaders and typically take place in a community setting, such as a senior center, church, library, or hospital. The program teaches the skills needed in the day-to-day management of treatment and to maintain and/or increase life's activities.
The sessions are highly interactive and focus on building skills, shared experiences, and support. Participants create their own custom action plans and help each other solve problems they encounter in creating and carrying out their self-management program.
