Caregiver INSIGHT Study: How to Address Caregiver Needs
Caregivers hold the key to influencing the decisions for their loved one. In this study, funded by Guidewell as part of the Caring for Caregivers Health Innovation Challenge and fielded in partnership with Caregiver Action Network, we measured the impact of a robust program of caregiver support on family caregivers’ stress, burnout, feelings of isolation, general wellbeing, and confidence in their ability to care for their loved ones.
This study is exactly the type of evidence that the research landscape has always needed. We’re finally able to demonstrate in research ways that these supports make a huge difference. I cannot underscore enough how important that is.John Schall
Measurable impact on caregiver confidence
Caregivers often find themselves in uncharged territory with unfamiliar tasks, decisions and circumstances. Participants in Carallel’s personalized support program identified multiple benefits, including:
- Having fewer days feeling they were in “crisis mode”
- Feeling like they had critical help handling caregiving
- Feeling more confident they were effectively caring for their loved one
