Functioning Well – every family member doing a job they are capable of

Our mission at FamilyEQ.us is to equip families to function as a championship team. In championship teams, every team member has a job to do, and they are trained to do their job with all their heart, focus, and personal skills.

Families that have a member with special needs may need to do jobs they have never done before for the care of the family member, and, even more importantly, for the care of each other. When families are functioning well the responsibility of meeting the needs of the member with special needs is shared to others beyond the primary caregiver.

A great solution to this dilemma happens when every family member adjusts their family responsibilities to assist the primary caregiver. Friends and extended family members find their role in this team-focused process.

The FamilyEQ Resource Builder®reflective assessment and family report helps guide the entire family and support system in the adjustments needed to better care for one another, in addition to the family member who has special needs. This tool identifies family problem solving skills, resilience factors, household organization and caregiver health, and family strengths & resources as areas important to improving functioning wellness.
