PromoSlidesforWebsite-33

Caregiving is a National Public Health Crisis! There are 65 million family caregivers in the U.S. struggling and searching for support. Now, more than ever before, since the start of COVID-19 caregivers are in crisis. So, where do they go for support?  Now is the time to reach out and minister to the millions who are caring for a sick, disabled, or aging loved one.  And, Nourish is the program designed to do exactly just that.

Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:28

  • Managing Family Dynamics
  • Coping with Stress
  • The Spirituality of Asking For Help
  • End-of-Life Issues

We have three models available flexible to the specific needs of your organization: Traditional Model, Virtual/Hybrid Model and Healthcare Model. Read more about each below.

11
Traditional Model
The Nourish for Caregivers traditional model is completely turn-key, with all of the content for preparation, convening the session, promoting and evaluating the success of your sessions provided. The traditional program is facilitated by lay leaders in the community. Caregivers journey together face-to-face, meeting monthly at the hosting church. The program is supported by the following:
  • Detailed Leader's Guide
  • Ministry Portal w/access to all of the digital curriculum, participant materials, promotional content, and much more.
  • Content is available in both English and Spanish.
  • Quarterly LIVE Leader Webinars
  • Additional caregiver resources
13
Virtual/Hybrid Model
In response to COVID19 and social distancing, Nourish for Caregivers quickly converted its traditional model curriculum to one facilitated by lay leaders via virtual web meeting (Zoom, etc.) Going forward, we envision groups may find a hybrid approach desirable (e.g., meeting in person and tieing caregivers in from home who cannot physically join.)
The virtual curriculum contains:
  • Everything provided in the Traditional Model
  • Digital slide presentation unique to each topic with embedded video to facilitate the web meeting
  • Specific tips and tools to help manage virtual group sessions
  • Content is available in both English and Spanish
Book Reveal-2
Healthcare Model
Healthcare organizations that provide Home Care, Assisted Living, Skilled Care,  or Memory Care, to name a few, can create a culture of caring and facilitate the creation of connected communities to support family caregivers. Like the Traditional Model, the curriculum addresses the practical, emotional and spritual needs of caregivers.  Facilities today also use the program to nourish their paid/professional caregivers who also experience compassion fatigue, stress and same challenges as family caregivers.
The program is supported with the following:
  • A Turnkey Program Designed on the Whole-person Framework
  • Content provided in the Traditional Model
  • Ministry Portal w/access to all of the digital curriculum, participant materials, promotional content, and much more.
  • Content is available in both English and Spanish.
