We incorporate elements of PCTI approaches in our case management and a variety of in-home services to Holocaust survivors and their caregivers living in the village of Kyrias Joel and in the general Orange County community. We are also developing a PCTI-informed and culturally sensitive outreach program to inform the community of the increased services available to Holocaust survivors and their caregivers.
Case managers and trained volunteers assist in coordinating a variety of services, including supportive visits, grocery shopping, transportation, reassurance telephone calls, and social model day programs. We are expanding our volunteer recruitment to enlist volunteers who will receive additional PCTI training as well as the culture of the Kyrias Joel community. Counselors visit caregivers to provide education and training in order to enhance their coping skills.
