“Caring for the Caregiver”
Healthcare team members have often referred to the family caregiver as “the second patient.” This course reviews the significant burden of stress facing the caregiver and its correlation to the resident receiving care by the interprofessional team. Strategies will be shared for team members to support the caregiver, to include a range from verbal feedback to recommendations for managing the stress so that they can better care for their own physical, mental and emotional health.
- Cite the physical effects which may often result from the stress of caregiving.
- Describe how to recognize potential events that trigger increased disturbances in caregivers.
- List strategies to support caregivers, for improved care for themselves as well as for their family member.
