TCARE® Screener

This link is for caregivers who have contacted their local TCARE Specialist and have been directed to fill out the TCARE® Screener.

The TCARE® Screener asks you to reflect on your experiences and respond to a series of statements based on identified rating scales in each section.

This screener is used to help you and the caregiver specialist get a better understanding of your situation and to better define an individualized plan to meet your unique needs.

Take the short screener to get the initial measures of your wellbeing, and a TCARE Specialist will reach out to discuss the results.

If you haven’t been in touch with your TCARE Specialist, you will want to contact them first.

Filling out the TCARE® Screener

There are two other ways you can complete the TCARE® Screener.

  1. Over the phone with a TCARE specialist asking you the questions and filling in your responses as you complete the survey
  2. By downloading it below.

      You can print a copy and fill it out by hand. You will need to make arrangements with your caregiver specialist to get him or her a copy of your completed screener.
