Healthcare professionals experience more than their fair share of stress on the job. While assisting patients having physical, cognitive or mental health challenges, they frequently are also managing the concerns of the patients’ loved ones: their family caregivers.
The more stressed out the caregiver of a patient is, the more time and energy a healthcare professional has to devote to that case. Caregivers often need reassurance that they are doing right by their loved ones. But sometimes they require redirection because their caregiving strategies are creating drama and burnout. Moreover, family caregivers’ stress can be also contagious to the patient which makes treating the patient more difficult.
Do you always have the time and energy to provide this kind of support to your patients’ caregivers? Cruising Through Caregiving: Reducing The Stress of Caring For Your Loved One shows caregivers exactly how to pinpoint and reduce their areas of stress.
