    Caregiver Wellness Series #2: The Resilient Caregiver

    in Self Help

     
            Resilience is a strengths-based term that refers to the ability of the caregiver to adjust and adapt positively despite challenging care-related situations. Resilience among caregivers is important because we must be able to pick ourselves up  and refocus our energy in a healthy way.  One of our resilient caregivers stated that “I am a family caregiver and even though there may be days that it takes all I can give I would not give it up for anything.”
             Never giving up and pushing forward as a caregiver is the type of resilience we will be discussing on this show.  We will also discuss how you as a caregiver can provide care for a sick or disabled loved one or client in a healthy and flexible way.  Please join us on March 26, 2012 @ 11 a.m. CST as Dr. Eboni Green further defines and discusses what it means and how to become a resilient caregiver.

    Caregiver Wellness Series #5: Spiritual Wellness

    in Self Help

    Caregiver Wellness:  Are you headed toward spiritual distress?  
    Caring for  a loved one or client suffering from a debilitating or terminal illness can be distressing. The feeling of distress often compounds when there is little hope that your  loved one’s suffering will be eased or that her condition will improve. The resulting long-term emotional strain can lead you to question of the general the meaning of life and result in spiritual distress.
     It is important to recognize that there can be serious implications for your health and relationships if you are not spiritually well. Spiritual wellness does not necessarily relate to religious activities or rituals; rather spiritual wellness focuses on the activity of adding meaning to your life and those for whom you care. In fact, spirituality can serve as a positive coping mechanism, as it is associated with better mental health, and linked to less depression. Some researchers also suggest that spirituality might serve as a protective factor against negative health outcomes among caregivers.
    Join us on October 29th at 11:00 a.m. CST as we continue our year long-series of exploring the nine components of the Caregiver Wellness “U” Model. Our caregiver expert, Dr. Eboni Green whose credentials include the co founding of Caregiver Support Services and is a professor for two major universities and is the lead instructor for family caregiver training program at Caregiver Support Services will educate us on what it means to be spiritually well as a caregiver.

    Caregiver Wellness Series #1: The Empowered Caregiver

    in Self Help

    The term empowerment is defined as the ability to engage in and execute behaviors for successful caregiving. It is a significant force that helps the caregiver with the tasks associated with caring for a sick or disabled loved one. In fact, once a caregiver is empowered, the caregiver is better able to help a loved one live life with greater fulfillment. 
    Also empowered caregivers are more likely to take self-responsibility for their health and wellness, in addition to the well-being of their loved one. In fact, in a recent study, employed caregivers were found to have higher healthy behavior index scores than noncaregivers (Coughlin, 2010). Coughlin has suggested that the higher healthy behavior index scores among employed caregivers might be related to the caregivers being empowered to make healthier lifestyle decisions such as not smoking, exercising regularly, and eating fresh fruits and vegetables on a more consistent basis.
    Join us on February 27, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. CST as caregiver expert, Dr. Eboni Green discusses the profile of an empowered caregiver and how we as caregivers can take responsibility of self-empowerment and strive for optimum wellness.
