PRESENTATION DESCRIPTIONS

The descriptions below are of our most popular presentations/workshops.

Who Cares for the Caregiver?

(for management conference on caregiver issues).

Share The Care™ (STC) is a highly regarded grassroots caregiving model used throughout the U.S., Canada and other countries to help people who are in need of support.  It was created from the real-life needs and the experiences of 12 women (who didn’t know each other) who cared for a terminally ill friend. By working closely together for nearly four years they learned to create a model that could support their friend as well as themselves, so no one person had too much to do and each managed to keep her own life in good working order.

Management personnel will learn the first steps needed to organize the critical first meeting of a STC group and why working as a close-knit team maintains the group’s long-term ability to sustain their support.

During this overview of the STC model, participants learn about the key STC systems and see examples of STC in action in other communities as well as some of the inspiring accomplishments of STC groups from around the world.

The goal is to make them aware of a resource that can help their employees who could benefit from this kind of support.

Audience: Management seminars, or workshop

How to turn “What Can I do to Help?” Into Action

(for all employees)

A friend tells you of a loved one’s illness. Another says she or he is caring for an aging parent. A couple faces long-term health issues with no outside support. We’ve all said it—because it’s the most universal, most instinctive reaction: “What can I do to help?” Everyone will be touched by caregiving at some point in life. What can each of us do now so that we are better prepared for our turn at bat? And how can we avoid burning out on the job?

During this introduction to the Share The Care™ (STC) model, you’ll hear the story of how the first STC group was born to help a divorced working mom with two teens and terminal cancer. And what happened to inspire the authors to write the STC guidebook so that others could follow in their footsteps.

The presentation includes examples of STC groups who have gone above and beyond the usual caregiving “call of duty” and their very inspiring accomplishments.

This presentation is about “workplace community” at its best.

Audience: perfect presentation for: all employees, caregiver events and in-house support groups.

Single, Separated, Widowed or Divorced –
Who Cares for the Person Who Lives Alone?”

(for all employees)

Today more and more people live alone far from family; or they have no family.  What happens when they need help?  Who will care for them?

This Share The Care™ (STC) presentation is filled with stories of groups that came to the rescue of individuals without family, or spouse, or relatives who could take on a caregiver role.

The audience learns through storytelling of how a “created STC families” have overcome some very difficult challenges. And though these families cannot cure, they can heal.

This presentations includes what it takes to start a STC group as well as important suggestions on how we can each “be better prepared” should we ever need support–no matter if we have family or not.

Audience: employees who live alone and especially those in treatment who have no family (nearby). For people who want to “be prepared” should they ever need the support of others.

CAREGIVER COACHING

“Let’s Get Started”

A Workshop for
Working Caregivers and Employees
Undergoing Treatment & their Concerned Friends

Workshop Description:

If your corporate community has a number of employees who are caregivers and/or employees undergoing treatment and they are ready to accept a Share The Care™ (STC) group, but need guidance to get started, we offer a special workshop. Because the initial STC group meeting is designed to be organized and led by two committed friends, each employee will need to enlist them to attend.

Working together in little groups within a larger group, people can feel more encouraged and less alone in their need for outside support.

Following background stories and examples of what groups are capable of doing we walk everyone through each of the steps needed to organize and maintain their first STC meeting. Lots of Q & A and sharing.

If an employee undergoing treatment has no family (nearby) this is a wonderful way for two friends or co-workers to initiate a “caregiving family” to support them.

Following this workshop each person, within their small team, should leave with plan of action and a sense of confidence and enthusiasm about accepting help.

____

This workshop is between 3 – 3.5 hours There is minimum of 30 people.  It can be scheduled for weekend or after work hours.

Materials: Each participant receives a copy of the STC guidebook and a special workbook that includes 23 STC forms, handouts and suggestions(60-90 minutes) Q & A, Handout brochures
