Caregiver Support

We’re here to care for the caregiver, just as much as we — and they — are here for the patient. Many tell us “we get them” when no one else does, and that Cleveland Clinic Nevada is a place where they can “be themselves.” Come as you are. We’ll do our best to meet you where that is.

Caregiver Support Programs

Asking for help can be one of the most difficult things a patient or caregiver does. While you may not think you need assistance, a ride from a friend on a day your energy level is low or an offer to pick up a few groceries can lighten the burden of brain disease.

Don’t hesitate to ask for help from friends, family or those who have traveled the journey of brain disease before you — including the team at Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. We are here to guide and help you along your journey, and much of our advice comes in the form of free therapeutic and support programs made possible by generous donors.

Powerful Tools for Caregivers

Program Overview:

Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health & Dignity Health – St. Rose Dominican

Powerful Tools for Caregivers is an evidence-based program designed to counteract negative feelings and positively impact the health of a diverse caregiving population including adult children of aging parents, spouses/partners, and caregivers at differing stages in their caregiving roles, living situations, financial means, and educational backgrounds.

Research studies show a high rate of depression and anxiety among caregivers because they often feel powerless over their circumstances and the events in their lives. These feelings significantly impact their overall physical and emotional health and well-being.

Healthier Living

Program Overview:

Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health & Dignity Health – St. Rose Dominican

The Healthier Living class, originally developed at Stanford University, is an Evidenced Based Chronic Disease Self-Management workshop designed to help individuals set personal goals for their health and well-being and identify strategies to successfully achieve them. In addition to chronic disease management, this series is perfect for people coping with the diseases we treat here at Cleveland Clinic, as well as their care partners.

The program consists of six 2 1/2 hr workshop sessions led by trained volunteer facilitators and is provided FREE of charge. Plan now to attend. Enrollment is limited.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, more than 125 million adults suffer from at least one chronic illness such as high blood pressure, heart disease, chronic pain or anxiety. In addition, caregiving heightens the risk of developing a chronic illness due to increased stress.
