See Caregivers As Your Partners

Thank you for participating in the Embracing Caregivers Challenge! 

We hope that it has been helpful in reminding you to embrace the caregiver as your partner in patient care. Your job is to take care of the patient and the caregiver is taking the torch from you. You want it to burn bright for years to come. That’s why it’s imperative to place as much emphasis on the caregiver as you do on the patient.

Before they leave your care, ensure the caregiver has everything they need for optimal physical and emotional health. At minimum, remind them to:
  • Eat healthy foods
  • Get enough sleep
  • Get daily physical activity
  • Connect with friends
  • Spend time on a hobby
  • Relax with a good book, meditation, or soothing music
  • Take regular breaks
  • Have a respite and emergency plan

If you feel they need additional support, direct them to organizations that can help, such as: Did you find this challenge helpful? Let us know why our why not in the challenge updates section here, our private Facebook group, or on Twitter, or Instagram
