DuPage County Introduces Program to Reduce Caregiver Burnout

DuPage County caregivers for people who are 60 years and older are eligible to participate in TCARE, an evidence-based assessment to reduce caregiver stress and burnout.

The TCARE system partners with government and healthcare entities, using scientifically validated algorithms to create individualized care plans for caregivers. Types of assistance may include assistive technology, in-home support, education, adult day care, informal support, and counseling.

The Senior Services Caregiver Resource Center will host a Zoom meeting for hospital and long-term care discharge planners to learn more about the new TCARE assessment and available County supports for overwhelmed caregivers. The meeting will take place from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Feb. 11.

To register for the meeting, please email jennifer.chlela@dupageco.org with “TCARE” in the subject line prior to Feb. 9. You will receive a confirmation email with Zoom information.

To learn more about the TCARE program or about caregiving support available through DuPage County, call (630) 407-6500 or visit www.dupageco.org/caregiver.
