- Get Permission. You know someone who faces a health care challenge who could benefit from a Support Team. Get permission to organize their support through one trusted person to make it easier for them to get what they need.
- Make a List. Ask the Friend to compile a list of these friends, neighbors, church and family members, people who’ve said something to the effect of, “If there’s ever anything I can do, please give me a call.” Invite them to a 59-minute meeting to learn about a Support Team for their friend.
- Invite the potential team members to a Team Orientation. Share with them the “10 Best Practices;” and choose a team leader or co-leaders. (For more information on orienting your team, click here.)
- Meet with your Friend and agree on what needs will be addressed. Contact the team members to coordinate the calendar and begin the caring. Share the calendar with the Friend.
