Caregivers are the forgotten heart of health care delivery. America and American corporations will reap the benefits of lower healthcare costs and increased productivity when caregivers are supported. Loved ones enjoy better health outcomes and businesses become more profitable when caregivers learn the importance of their own wellness.
For both family and professional caregivers, Compassion Fatigue results from helping others in distress. It becomes an extreme state of tension and a preoccupation with the suffering of those being helped. In our culture, caregiving is seen as an obligation; sacrifice is often expected. Many caregivers put a loved one’s health ahead of their own and suffer with significant health risks. The result can be devastating when no one is left to support the person who needed care in the first place.
Caregiving is a compelling national story, a powerful health story and a sacred heroic story that needs to be told and honored by all.
