Short-Term Breaks for Caregivers

Origin

In the past, a family receiving medical treatment is a focus that many people pay attention to; however, family caregivers who suffer stress over a long time are seldom mentioned or focused on.

According to the feedback from our company staffs and collaborative organizations, PSA Charitable Foundation found that family caregivers are eagerly in need of mental support; therefore, We’ve been actively planning and anticipating in this program so that caregivers will get a chance of short-term breaks properly so as to resume the vigor that keeps them moving forward.

Method

Inviting family caregivers and the family members receiving medical treatment to participate in activities, caregivers can have a temporary stress-free period through experiencing the stress-relieving activities; the family members receiving medical treatment will be accompanied by volunteers while visiting some scenic spots in the neighborhood areas, exploring a different vision of life.

Achievement

Ever since 2016, activities have been held through collaborations with Syin-Lu Social Welfare Foundation, Eden Social Welfare Foundation, Yung Shin Social Welfare Foundation (YSSWF), Down Syndrome Foundation, etc., each collaborative organizations as well as participating caregivers are satisfied with the activities and hope to continue the collaboration of promoting the service of short-term breaks for caregivers, giving support to more families.
