It is an honor to be associated with “TCAP,” The Caregivers Advisory Panel. When I  first learned about “TCAP,” I thought to myself. “Yes, this is excellent. Why hasn’t this been done before?” It was then I realized the importance of having the Caregiver’s voice heard. The role of the caregiver and their needs can assist manufacturers of products, legislation and much more.

The program is an excellent opportunity to share your opinions, frustrations and needs. It offers you an opportunity to learn about and test new products pertinent to home health. And it affords you an opportunity to earn cash and eligibility for special awards. While the research provides opportunities to change so many aspects for caregivers TCAP has a privacy agreement to protect you.The membership is free and you may sign up from her and at the TCAP site.

The Mission Of TCAP:

To confidentially collect, quantify and interpret facts, opinions and needs of family caregivers in a way that enables health care manufacturers, service providers and policy makers to gain insight for their decision making that will drive the innovation of improved products, services, programs and support for America’s 25 million caregiving families.

I encourage you to let your voice be heard. To learn more, click on the following links:

  • Ms. Mitchell began her full-time caregiving experience in the early eighties when her husband was diagnosed with cancer. Later on she became the primary caregiver for her father, along with her mother who had become critically ill from burnout prior to her dad’s passing. In recent years, she cared for several friends with AIDS while continuing to care for her mother and actively providing support, information, referrals and resources for caregivers.

    Gail's leadership on the Internet and her success with Empowering Caregivers led her to found National Organization For Empowering Caregivers (NOFEC) INC in 2001.

    Prior to founding NOFEC, she created the iVillageHealth Chat: Empowering Caregivers, which she hosted for over 5 years. Within a month of hosting she created Empowering Caregivers: www.care-givers.com in 1999 as a resource for caregivers around the globe. Over three million visitors have frequented the website.
