What we aim to solve

Baby Boomers are aging and there are growing numbers of adults in the U.S. who are not fully able to care for themselves. Some live relatively independently but still require some level of care and support. Others require full-time care. The need for caregiving is projected to increase substantially in the years ahead as lifetime expectancy increases and the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia continues to rise. Studies show that family caregivers of people Alzheimer’s or dementia spend more hours, do more difficult work and provide assistance for more years than family members caring for older adults without memory loss. Most caregivers cannot afford in-home or residential nursing care, and insurance rarely covers the cost. Family caregivers frequently bear the full burden of support. As their lives are centered on caring for their aging loved ones, they often face social isolation, suffer from their own physical ill-health and struggle with significant financial hardships.

Founded in 1985, CarePartners’ mission is to provide support, education and resources for caregivers and quality care to those living with memory loss and other challenges of aging. Our programs: 1. Train volunteers from faith-based, business, and civic communities who form Care Teams® that deliver care to the elderly, impaired and vulnerable; 2. Support family caregivers by providing respite practical support, which helps lower stress and prevent burnout; and 3. Offer access to resources for family caregivers and their loved ones. CarePartners is committed to:  Providing direct care at no cost  Having loved ones live at home as long as possible  Reducing the burden on family caregivers  Helping family caregivers and their loved ones maintain or improve their quality of life over time  Offering transformative programs via our Care Team® Model

Provide education, support and resources through our four signature programs. Gathering Place is a 3.5 hourly program specifically for individuals with early to moderate Alzheimer’s, other dementias or memory loss. Planned activities strengthen motor and social skills through games, music, crafts, lunch and socialization. Caregivers receive 3.5 hrs of respite support while their loved ones attends a Gathering Place. Second Family is a home-bound program to help individuals living with other challenges due to aging. An extended family of trained volunteers offers companionship for home-bound individuals. Caregivers receive respite support through second family. Common Ground is a support group for family caregivers offering emotional support, encouragement, friendships and helpful tips about self-care and caregiving. Caregiver Conferences are educational events that connect family caregivers with education and community resources on how to provide quality care to their loved one.

CarePartners is a nonprofit organization that partners with faith congregations, nonprofit and businesses to provide practical assistance and emotional support to family members who are caring for people with Alzheimer’s or other dementias and other challenges of aging. We bring caring volunteers together with families in need of support in order to make life better for the weak and vulnerable and for those who serve them. Volunteers serve as loving companions to vulnerable people who live alone, allowing them to continue living independently. Volunteers also offer primary caregivers respite from the daily demands of caregiving, along with special programs that equip, educate, and provide them with emotional support throughout their caregiving journey. We partner with over 70 congregations in the Greater Houston/Waco areas to host our programs. More than 2,100 volunteers serve on a Care Team to support our 4 signature programs.

CarePartners will impact family caregivers and their loved ones by offering more monthly programs through partnerships across the Greater Houston and Waco areas. Increasing the number of collaborative partners and volunteers will ultimately allow us to serve more family caregivers and their loved ones. Creating more opportunities for individuals, businesses, foundations and congregations to support CarePartners financially will allow to us to continue to offer FREE programs to this vulnerable population.

There is a tremendous need for more faith congregations and Care Team® members to serve vulnerable people and their caregivers in the Houston area. The need is especially great in Ft. Bend County, Baytown, and other underserved communities where there is a significant senior population but few volunteers to serve them. Our goal is to expand CarePartners’ footprint in the Houston area and to make our programs are more widely available and easily accessible, so that any person needing support can access our resources. Donations to CarePartners covers the cost of recruiting, training, and supporting Care Team® volunteers who work tirelessly to provide companionship and practical support for vulnerable populations and those who care for them. We are expanding into areas that are underserved, like the Fort Bend and Baytown areas.
