WeCare...Because You Do
CALL TODAY FOR MORE INFORMATION (216) 373-1797
Are you caring for an older adult loved one and feeling overwhelmed? Decisions about healthcare and concerns about accessing community services for your loved one can be difficult, in addition to balancing your own well-being and other professional and personal responsibilities. WeCare...Because You Do, the new name for Benjamin Rose's delivery of BRI Care Consultation™, offers the information you need, the compassion you want, and the personalized service you deserve to help you navigate your own unique experiences caring for an older loved one.
WeCare is a telephone- and email-based care coordination program for families caring for an older loved one with chronic health conditions, and older adults without caregivers managing their own health needs.
Trained WeCare Care Consultants can help you make important decisions and have difficult—but necessary—conversations. WeCare's emphasis on simple, practical solutions and ongoing guidance can empower you and your family to manage care and decision-making throughout your caregiving experience. Our Care Consultants collaborate with you and your loved one to:
- Coordinate health care, community-based services and family or friend support
- Create action plans to meet your targeted needs
- Reduce stress and strain
- Address issues most important to you, including, but not limited to:
- Long-term care planning
- Financial and legal concerns
- Supportive in-home and community-based services
- Provide trustworthy chronic disease-specific information, and resources to answer caregiving concerns
- Equip you with strategies to better communicate with your loved one and their helpers
To qualify for WeCare, you or your loved one must:
- Have at least one chronic health condition
- Have the ability to participate in decision-making independently or with the support of a caregiver
- Have a reliable phone, and access to phone service
During your first call, our Care Consultants will discuss payment options with you. With support from Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging, and funding from the Older Americans Act, WeCare is offered free of charge to caregivers and/or adults age 60 and older who are living in Cuyahoga County.
For more information, call (216) 373-1797 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

"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."
“Finding this facility that we think is perfect for her, I don’t think we would have gotten to that without the assistance of the Care Consultant at Benjamin Rose. I just don’t know how we would have ever honed in on this solution to our caregiving and to the needs of my mother without having contacted Benjamin Rose. It certainly wouldn’t have happened this quickly.” – Read the full testimonial in “Not sure where to turn for caregiving support?” on Cleveland.com.
