Our hand-drawn CareMap is where it all began. We want this tool to be accessible to all; having both a digital and hand-drawn version seemed inevitable.
We have found the hand-drawn CareMap method is great for groups and workshops, allowing participants to share and discuss their maps with one another. The hand-drawn CareMap captures less information about the people and type of relationships in your community, but it is still a powerful tool for visualizing what’s working well and where more support might be needed.
Resources for learning how to draw your own CareMap are provided here, along with a set of worksheets designed to help you interpret and use your CareMap to improve caregiving outcomes for yourself and the rest of your care ecosystem.
