Our organization is pleased to provide training and guidance for developing your own Caregiver Boot Camp in your community. The purpose of this program is to train and empower as many communities based, non-professional caregivers as possible in each community.
Why is this important for your community? Informal/Lay/family caregivers provided $522 BILLION a year in uncompensated care in 2014. This number is expected to rise over the next 20 years. These caregivers rarely receive basic training, support, or follow up. Resulting in personal financial loss, increased medical costs, caregiver burnout and decreased quality of life for the caregivers and the ones receiving care.
Who does this affect? Basically, everyone is affected by this. Your local economy is affected, your taxes, the availability of state and federal funding is stretched thin. Providers, Hospitals, Nursing homes, Assisted Livings, and Home Health Agencies see the need every day, but there are simply not enough professional caregivers to meet this need.
EvelynElaine was grown out of a community service project. My home health agency asked 3 questions; What can we do to affect the quality of life for the elderly in our community? What is the most needed training? How can we train an entire community to be caregivers in an hour and a half increments?
We built the program in 2019, trained 30 members of the community, and then COVID-19 hit the state. We were unable to continue the training and donations and funding opportunities dried up.
We have previously received $1,000 in grant funds.
