Caregiving for someone with special needs is complicated, stressful, and can be lonely. We provide an online service to help you navigate the highs and lows of life so you can have peace and help your family flourish.
When becoming a caregiver of an individual with special needs, we often focus on caring for those who we're responsible for, while working less at caring for ourselves. The time and financial commitment of being a caregiver is stressful and while our position should require more resources, what FamilyEQ found in research is that caregivers are often equipped with fewer resources to thrive. Our aim is to even those odds. Please watch this video from our founder, Dr. Gary Sweeten, to hear why we created this tool and how we know it will work for your family.Learn More
Through years of evidence and practice based research, we understand that there is a gap between the needs of caregivers and the tools and resources available to them. FamilyEQ exists because nothing like it has been available, despite that need. Our tools are designed to give the caregiver the power to work on what is important to their family. While there are many pieces of FamilyEQ that are unique, the Assessment and Action Planner are what enable your family to pinpoint the items in your life that matter. They assist you in giving yourself the care that you need to impact your family in a significant way. Learn more about these tools and how they'll help your family today.Our Difference
