This morning, I read this very informative article from Gary Barg/Editor-in-Chief at Today's Caregiver Magagine.  Great ideas for caregivers!!!  Happy Mothers Day Weekend to all of you Moms out there!!


Top Ten Things a Caregiver Needs
from a Health Care Provider

1. Attention: The caregiver's loved one may be the 27th similar case you've seen today; but to the caregiver, this is Mom or Dad, Sister or Lover.

2. Compassion: Be diligent in its application.

3. Time: A few moments of your undivided time is some of the strongest medicine you'll ever administer—and it costs so very little.

4. Respect: The person pushing the wheelchair is also part-time bookkeeper, psychologist, dietitian, insurance and incontinence expert, and a full-time general in the war they are waging with this illness. They not only need your respect, they DESERVE it.

5. Dedication: Be relentless in your devotion to your craft. The caregiver has entrusted you with their most valuable asset—their loved one. You earn that trust with your skill, knowledge base and ability.

6. Honesty: The caregiver is your partner in this endeavor; they deserve (and can handle) the truth.

7. Prudence: The graceful administration of the truth is a true test of a caring professional.

8. Advocacy: Never accept less than the best your system has to offer their 
loved one.

9. Understanding: The caregiver plays a pivotal role in the well-being of your patient; understanding the needs, wishes and fears of the caregiver improves your patient's care.

10. Your well-being: Know your emotional limit and learn when to ask for help. Your loved ones as well as the caregiver's loved one need you to remain well.
