2018 End of Year Accomplishments & Appeal

November/December 2018
Dear Share The Care™ Supporters,
In 2018, we put the pedal to the metal, attending or speaking at a number of important conferences, leading a STC training and participating at a summit focused on respite for caregivers. All of these events recognized what we have been broadcasting for years, the coming 2030 aging crisis–a time when there will not be enough health professionals or people to take on the care of 71 million boomers over 65, many of whom will need support.
During the year, we identified an immediate phenomenon where STC can provide help: during the patient’s transition from hospital to home. Here the care team, and not just the family caregiver, can be instructed on how to care for the loved one to avoid hospital re-admission, an all too common occurrence in the face of caregiver stress, burnout or social isolation due to lack of support. Many hospitals have “People”- Centered Care Programs, a natural fit for STC to be introduced at discharge, or during hospital support groups after receiving a difficult diagnosis.
We will add this focus to our work in the coming year as we continue to introduce STC to the friends, neighbors, and faith communities where many seek help, assist working caregivers who find themselves overwhelmed as they juggle their caregiving duties with their jobs and family responsibilities, strive to incorporate STC into the curriculum for social work and nursing, and work to offer a Spanish edition of STC.
Your Support Has Never Been More Critical.  We have our work cut out for the coming year and far beyond. To accomplish any of this and ultimately make “Let’s Start an STC Group” the household refrain when faced with a family caregiving medical or aging crisis, please donate to ShareTheCaregiving with a meaningful tax-deductible donation of $100, $500 or $1,000 now. Perhaps you’ve just become a family caregiver or were helped by an STC group, regardless, please reflect on the value of having a ready-made plan to organize and sustain a group to help you care for your loved one.

2018-Accomplishments
We want to share two videos that Phyllis Quinlan, PhD, RN-BC and I (Sheila) did recently at the Planetree Conference in Boston, thanks to Kistein Monkhouse, MPA – PatientOrator.
What makes them special is that we cover the Share The Care model from different perspectives: the layperson who lived and helped create it and the professional who understands its true value for hospital person-centered care programs.
