Week7: Developing a Logic Model Outline Handout Complete the tables below to develop both a practice-level logic model and a program-level logic model to address the needs of Helen in the Petrakis case history.

She is experiencing exhaustion from a lack of support from her husband and children. Helen needs support that will offer strategies and techniques to help cope with providing care for elderly family members. Reports from the National Center on Caregiving (2018) states that 41% of caregivers experience a health crisis with depression, exhaustion, anger, and fatigue. Furthermore, caregivers sacrifice their emotional and physical needs with providing care to others. Helen provides care for her husband’s 81-year-old mother. She is married and has three adult children who do not share in the responsibilities of the household. To make matters worse, Helen does not feel that they need to assist with the chores, laundry, and/or cooking. Helen’s problems are tremendous, so the recommendations are for her to visit a counselor and/or therapist individually or as a group. Psychotherapy sessions will help her sort through her emotional and cognitive functioning. In a study by Berman (2015) focusing on caregiver behaviors, findings showed that an intervention of this sort will be beneficial for reducing stress, anxiety, and depression. It is recommended caregivers attend once a week session for 60 to 90 minutes depending on the therapists or counselors assessment and focus on self-care strategies and practices. Overall, caregivers will need positive support from family and friends to alleviate the development of serious long-term complications. 3 Program Level: Based on a needs assessment due to Helen’s lack of assistance, it is recommended that Helen receives psychotherapy and participate in a program for caregivers. Psychotherapy will provide the help and encouragement Helen needs to cope with caring for family, but most importantly herself. It is apparent that Helen is unaware or unknowledgeable of the supports that are available to her. Helen does not receive support from her family, so a church member assists her in caring for her mother-n-law. Even though she receives help from the church member, it is not enough. Caring for her mother-n-law is exhaustive and time-consuming. Helen can achieve optimum results if she utilizes the new skills and strategies that she is given in her therapy sessions. To improve Helen’s competency in caregiving, she would need to attend a program that will address her lack of knowledge and training. According to Tarantine (2017), study on care for the elderly, Helen would need in-home respite care and/or nursing services to provide companionship and care for her mother-n-law. Trained staff would need to visit and educate Helen on caring for the elderly. Staff will provide skill training, managementstrategies, and problem solving techniques. Additionally, it may be necessary to connect Helen with resources that provide services for Helen dealing with respite care and related services for her mother-n-law. Finally, if Helen utilizes the self-care strategies from psychotherapy and assistance from trained professionals she has a great chance of improving her relationship with her family, avoid the feeling of being overwhelmed and stressed, and an overall improvement of her mental health. 4 References Bach, B.
