Two initiatives are at the core of our programming:
The Caregiver’s Encyclopedia — is an alternative web-based medical reference where family caregivers, home health workers and patients can get easy-to-understand, easy-to-remember, and even inspiring information about disease process and disease management. So far, we have comprehensive content on congestive heart failure, and interesting informational videos about COPD and Alzheimer’s dementia. All of our Century Tree informational material is vivid, memorable and accessible—In fact, you can get all of our disease management information without reading a single word!
A Community for Caregivers — Century Tree is building a ‘virtual community’ for family caregivers and home health workers. The start of it is a bunch of original short movies, produced by Century Tree. While most of them have caregiving themes, they’re all entertaining, funny and even heartrending, from soap operas to music videos to one short movie starring pug terrier! The next step will be up to people like you—building a community of caregivers that offers not just support for one another, but also two things that aren’t usually associated with caregiving—Friendship and Fun.
