Joy’s House CARE Kits are an organized binder of templates designed to keep important information in one central location.

This comprehensive solution is designed to help you create a tailored and holistic approach to care planning. Each Kit includes the following sections:

       •  About Your Loved One

       •  Developing A Plan

       •  Medical

       •  Household 

       •  Legal & Financial

       •  End of Life

       •  Additional Resources

These sections include spaces to note important information such as medical records, doctor’s appointments, medications, insurance policies and more. Templates to track medications, sleep patterns, behaviors and other changes are available to help communicate with others who assist with the care of your loved one. 

Mwandishi, a caregiver, with a trusted CARE Kit

“This kit helped me to get organized at a time when I was really struggling. It also encouraged me to think ahead – to things that I had no clue would take place in my household, with my husband or with me.”

– CARE Kit recipient

“My family’s most used page out of the CARE Kit is the Upcoming Doctors Visit form. This form has helped my dad feel much more comfortable asking his siblings for support and trusting that correct information gets shared, and all the necessary questions are asked. My dad gets relief from all the appointments, and his siblings are equipped to play a more active role in caring for their aging father.”
