WHAT DOES BRI CARE CONSULTATION™ PROVIDE?

ELIGIBILITY

TESTIMONIALS

Monica Gilbert, BRI Care Consultant, Atlanta Regional Commission

"BRI Care Consultation fills a gap by providing an empowerment model of care, service and ongoing support. The client (caregiver/care receiver) and the Care Consultant work together as a team to formulate action steps to address unmet needs and assist with decision making. This hands-on, real-time approach of care is a roadmap to addressing future concerns.

"Families are appreciative of the care, support, information and guidance they receive from BRI Care Consultation. Many consider their Care Consultant a trusted friend and someone with whom they can confidently discuss their concerns. The delivery of the program via telephone and email is a definite bonus... The need is so great for families who don'’t know of resources available in their area to assist with the care of chronically ill relatives or that support caregivers. The Care Consultant provides a fresh perspective on the situation and invites discussion on how to engage family members, health care professionals and support groups."


Jennifer Grim, Family Service Coordinator, Alzheimer's Association, Greater East Ohio Chapter

"Families who use BRI Care Consultation appreciate the personal connection—that they have a person who knows their situation, who they can call for a variety of questions related to caregiving. I find that a condition like dementia is overwhelming and coping with it takes time and multiple conversations. BRI Care Consultation accommodates this.

Family Caregiver

"It didn't take long for me to feel overwhelmed when my 80-year-old mother moved in with me. With all the worrying she would have another fall, I felt like I was running my own nursing home. My Care Consultant talked with me about my stress and ways to get a break. Without this information, I wouldn’t have known about the resources available. I still laugh about the first day I got some time away! I felt like a new person."
