This one-day SHARE THE CARE™ training will provide you with the information and tools you need to introduce the model to help family caregivers.  You’ll receive a copy of the Share The Care handbook, a 98-page training manual with electronic notes, all 23 Share The Care forms, and first-hand advice to guide one through every step in the process of organizing a Share The Care group and keep it functioning even when times are tough.  This knowledge will allow you to offer support and concrete suggestions to new groups just getting started.

Learn how to motivate patients and caregivers to consider the benefits of group help. Identify 10 Steps to get a Share The Care group going and the 7 principles that will keep it working for extended periods of time.  Experience what it feels like to work in a small group of 8 -10 people to solve the immediate caregiving issues of a (case study) family in need.  Recognize the signals that a group needs to reconvene and readjust how they are working. Discover how a Share The Care group benefits everyone including the care recipient, the family caregiver and their entire family, as well as each of the individual group members.
