The purpose of STC is to develop a greater understanding and appreciation of the role of family care-giving with individuals who are family caregivers, as well as, with those persons with whom the family caregiver interacts socially.
STC promotes awareness and provides education about the impact of family care-giving on the life of the family caregiver by hosting bimonthly seminars at which individuals who are family caregivers and individuals who are a part of the social network of family caregivers are invited to participate. The program targets citizens who reside in the zip code 33435 in Boynton Beach.
For each session a team fofamily caregiver and an individual who is a part of the social network of the family caregiver are invited to share a meal in a relaxing environment at a local restaurant. The activities vary at each session. Participants may practice stress relief strategies and discuss how family care-giving impacts their lives.
Participants may also create self-care kits, share useful tips, and learned about available resources.
