Caring for You, Caring for Me
Caring for You, Caring for Me (CFYCFM) provides education and support to caregivers through a series of flexible learning modules, helping caregivers take better care of themselves, collaborate effectively with professional caregivers, and be the best advocate possible for their care recipient.
This five-part, interactive training course has been designed to help family caregivers develop skills that most benefit them, including building relationships with professional caregivers to increase cooperation, understanding and support. CFYCFM provides opportunities for learning ways to cope with the stressors of being a caregiver, accessing resources, discovering ways to work together with others to reduce frustrations and barriers in the caregiver role, sharing common concerns, and recognizing that caregivers are not alone.
RCI provides a CFYCFM training manual for individuals and organizations who are interested in delivering CFYCFM in their communities.
