Vital Options International Announce Strategic Family Caregiver Initiative

Digital Health Technology, Caregiver Resiliency Training and Ongoing Support to Global Family Caregivers.

Flemington – January 18, 2022 – Vital Options International today announced the formation of their global strategic initiative to provide resiliency training and ongoing support through digital health solutions to family caregivers around the world.

To better understand the impact of family caregiver stress and burnout, Vital Options International conducted a recent global study with over 900 family caregivers participating. In addition to identifying the cause and impact of stress on the family caregiver, our research examined the impact on employers, insurance companies, and the healthcare system in general. Among other stress factors, our research also showed that demographic indicators such as age, race, gender, and geographical location significantly contributed to the impact on family caregivers and overall health outcomes in underserved communities.

Given the magnitude of stress and burnout the family caregiver experiences over time, Vital Options International, in collaboration with The Caregiving Years Training Academy and Advocate for Mom and Dad LLC, will provide family caregivers with an integrated caregiving solution. Comprised of a comprehensive set of educational tools, the Vital Family Caregiver solution will deliver a proven, results-based resiliency training curriculum and digital health platform for ongoing support and advanced resiliency training to family caregivers.

The combined solution is designed to address the underlying way family caregivers process and contain the stress and burnout they encounter. In addition, our solution will increase their confidence in decision making, minimize the overwhelm from difficult emotions and create more time in the day for themselves with purposeful plans. Through our global network of patients and family caregivers, the training curriculum and family caregiver certification will allow family caregivers at all levels to create lasting resiliency in the face of unremitting stress and burnout.

“Now more than ever, we need to provide the family caregiver with education, advocacy and support which leads to improved physical and mental health. Our integrated solution is designed to address the many daily challenges family caregivers face which in turn contributes to poor health outcomes and increased cost in the overall healthcare system.” said David S. Duplay, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Vital Options International.

Since 1983, Vital Options International has been providing patients, family caregivers and the healthcare industry with innovative digital solutions designed to support and educate not only patients and caregivers, but also those who support them. “I’m grateful to collaborate with Vital Options to support family caregivers through education, advocacy and support as they navigate the daily challenges they encounter. We know from our years of experience that family caregivers face painful, and stress filled days and hope to alleviate some of their worry and stress with our collaboration. ” said Denise M. Brown, Founder and President of The Caregiving Years Training Academy.

“Given the magnitude of stress and burnout family caregivers experience daily, we are encouraged and heart-warmed by the number of organizations that have expressed an interest in collaborating with, and supporting us, as we come together to provide education, advocacy and support to family caregivers.” said Debra Hallisey, Founder and President of Advocate for Mom and Dad.
