Executive summary

Executive Summary

The goal of G.I.F.T. is to provide caregivers of people with developmental disabilities a place to obtain knowledge and techniques to help increase their physical activity, manage the stress they face and improve their spiritual wellness.

Our mission

Our Mission

The mission of G.I.F.T. is to provide caregivers of people with developmental disabilities educational information and tactics that will help them live an active and stress-free life. By offering a wide range of classes and activities, we strive to improve the quality of life for all caregivers and lead them down a road towards optimal health.



  • There are approximately 44 million caregivers in the United States that take care of elderly or disabled persons (FCA 2006). Having to be responsible and having to care for a disabled family member can have negative outcomes on the caregiver that affects their mental, physical and social health (Whittier S). It’s crucial to alleviate this stress in order to prevent health risks.



  • Because of high stress rates poor hygiene skills, caregivers are prone to chronic illnesses more than non-caregivers such as diabetes, cancer, stroke, heart disease, depression and anxiety (FCA 2006).

  • Most of the time caregivers put aside their own health problems for the recipient. It has been reported that 72% of caregivers say they don’t visit the doctor as often as they should and 55% miss appointments (FCA 2006).

  • In a national survey 63% of caregivers reported that they don’t have good eating habits and 58% don’t exercise much (FCA 2006).

The problem

The Problem

  • A big problem with most programs is that “little attention has been given to assessing care giving competence, confidence and mastery in carrying out specific day-to-day tasks associated with care giving or to determining what help a caregiver might need” (Feinberg 2002)

  • A few programs that caregivers have said they would benefit from are respite services, financial support andcaregiver education and support programs (FCA 2006).
