CarePartners’ Coronavirus Response

Updates on our CarePartners’ COVID-19 response

Although most in-person programs still remain closed at this time, our staff are working with each location to determine a timeline to re-open in-person events. We are excited to report that some Care Team® programs will be open soon. We are still offering online events such as Common Ground Caregiver Support Groups and Caregiver Education and Conferences. We anticipate 8-10 Gathering Place programs starting during the Summer with more added in the Fall. In addition, several of our Second Family teams are beginning to serve their members. We are excited to once again be with you and we will keep you updated on the latest news.

We aim to continue to fulfill our mission of serving our volunteers and family caregivers who are caring for loved ones with memory loss and other challenges of aging through our three priorities; Support, Education and Resources.

Common Ground Support Group for Caregivers, held every week on Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. Click here for information on how to join the Zoom call, check your CarePartners’ weekly email or call our offices at 713-682-5995.

You can view our Caregiver Education Events videos on our YouTube Channel and Facebook Page. View our online calendar for information on upcoming events. These Caregiver Education Events will keep your loved ones active at home and provide you with resources during this time. Our goal is to bring you educational, helpful and relevant information about how to better care for yourself as a caregiver, and your loved one with memory issues or other challenges of aging. Our Caregiver Education is offered through social media “Hot Topic” segments, online caregiver conferences and workshops.

The Gathering at Your Place, the final live event was held on May 26, 2021; however, our staff is excited to begin our Gathering Place reopening plans to resume serving family caregivers and their loved ones with in-person events. We have LOVED connecting with you every week on Zoom, and you can find all of the Gathering at Your Place videos on the CarePartners website and on our YouTube channel.  To view the Gathering at Your Place videos on this page, just scroll down and look for the tab that says Gathering at Your Place Videos.

Below are also some additional resources that can help you stay informed and other resources such as free telephone learning sessions to help family caregivers. We will keep updating this page as soon as more information and resources are available.

Your CarePartners’ coordinator will remain in close contact with you regarding resuming our programs. We are hopeful that the virus slows down and doesn’t gain anymore traction than it already has in our community. We have developed a handout “Volunteering During a Crisis” which describes CarePartners safety recommendations for those sites considering resuming in-person programming. Please note that these guidelines are subject to change depending upon current local and state mandates and they may vary by location and the individual site’s safety procedures. For more information, please feel free to contact your CarePartners coordinator or Tom Breaux

We encourage you to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) by staying informed and following the CDC and World Health Organization’s updates and use basic preventative measures to protect yourself from the spread of respiratory diseases.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your CarePartners coordinator or Tom Breaux, COO/VP
