Care for the Caregiver (C4C)

UI Health has developed the Care for the Caregiver program to help provide emotional support to providers and staff through the experience of patient care.

Through the Care for the Caregiver program, UI Health hopes to better coordinate support for providers and staff when they are involved in stressful patient care experiences. In addition to already existing resources such as the EAP and Spiritual Care Services, Care for the Caregiver has established a peer support team to provide one-on-one, emotional support for all care team members at UI Health. If you are experiencing a normal reaction to a stressful event or outcome, we can help.

Our goal is to help care team members understand what normal reactions to stressful events look and feel like, and the resources available to them. The program is available to all healthcare team members at UI Health hospitals and clinic sites.
