What is the purpose of the TCARE assessment?

The purpose of the TCARE assessment is to gather critical information about the caregiving context, identity, strengths, problems and concerns. These data are used to identify strategies and goals to address your caregiver's needs. Program limits are established in WAC 388-106-1915.
(1) The five strategies in TCARE are:
(a) Strategy A: Change personal rules for care, which entails encouraging and helping your caregiver to change or adjust their personal rules or norms.
(b) Strategy B: Reduce or minimize work load, which focuses on reducing the amount or intensity of your caregiver's work load and therefore aligns your caregiver's behaviors with their expectations.
(c) Strategy C: Support positive self-appraisal, which focuses on offering positive affirmation and assuring your caregiver that the behaviors that they must engage in as a caregiver are consistent with their norms.
(d) Strategy D: Reduce generalized stress, which focuses on giving your caregiver tools and skills to cope with daily stresses of caregiving.
(e) Strategy E: Improve overall health, which encourages your caregiver to seek appropriate health services.
(2) Each service is mapped to a strategy(s) that may support your caregiver's needs. A service may be mapped to more than one strategy.
(3) Assessors assist you and your caregiver to understand the evidence based strategies and recommended services, choose the services to meet the identified goals, and create an individualized care plan.
