Embracing Caregivers 55
Embracing Caregivers
This challenge is powered by support from:

In the U.S. alone, about 65.7 million unpaid family caregivers provide care to someone who is ill, disabled, or aged.

Even with strong support systems in place, caregiving is a tremendous undertaking and often comes at the expense of the caregiver’s health and wellness. In fact, 55% of caregivers feel that their physical health has suffered and 47% have feelings of depression.

As the demands on these caregivers continue to grow, nurses are in a position to recognize the caregivers most at risk and help safeguard them against the emotional, physical, and financial burdens of caring for others.

During our October challenge, we encourage you to identify a family caregiver in your patient interactions and provide resources and guidance to those caregivers. Identifying a patient’s caregiver and providing care guidance will help them better navigate the challenges of caregiving. Starts October 14. Click “Yes” under “Ready to Join?” above to sign up and get started here.

Note: This challenge is primarily for those who work in a hospital setting, but many of the tips and resources are useful for any setting.  Prior to use, ensure all tips conform with your hospital’s policies, as well as federal, state, and local regulations.

Are you ready for this challenge? Post below to let us know how you feel about relating to your patient's caregivers. What are some challenges that you face?
