Embracing Caregivers 55
Embracing Caregivers
Taking care of a loved one in today’s healthcare environment can be overwhelming. In the US alone, it is estimated that there are 65.7 million unpaid family caregivers providing care to someone who is ill, disabled, or aged. Even with strong support systems in place, it can be 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 key position to recognize caregivers at risk and can help safeguard them against the emotional, physical, and financial costs of caring for others. 

During this 10 day challenge, we will encourage you to identify a family caregiver in your patient interactions and provide them with timely resources and guidance. This information will help them navigate the challenges of caregiving. Starts October 14. Click “Yes” under “Ready to Join?” above to sign up.
