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.

The following quotation is from a family caregiver: "I am very isolated, can’t really leave the house and get very little relief. The friend that calls me the most is not the friend I feel most comfortable with. The amount of family support is minimal." (A Caregiver Support Services Caregiver) The term social wellness refers to the number and quality of social supports available to caregivers. Social wellness includes interpersonal relationships and access to support from family, friends, church, and community. Please join us on April 30, 2012 at 11 a.m. CST as caregiver expert Dr. Eboni Green defines and discusses social wellness as a component of the Caregiver Wellness "U" model.

Caregiver Wellness: When guilt becomes an unhealthy emotion Are you feeling guilty? The truth is it is not uncommon for caregivers to experience some level of guilt even when they know they have done all they can to support a sick or disabled loved one or client. Join us today where we will discuss guilt and explore strategies to work though guilt as a caregiver. Guilt impacts psychological wellness, which is a part of the Caregiver Wellness: U model, a conceptual model that incorporates the movement toward social, psychological, physical, intellectual, spiritual, occupational, and financial wellness, while also incorporating the empowerment and resilience necessary to take charge of one’s health on a holistic basis. The components are not chronological; rather, they represent collective components. According to the Caregiver Wellness: U model, being psychologically well means that a person has adequate coping skills to deal with the sometimes competing emotions associated with caring for a sick or disabled loved one or client. Join us on September 24th @ 11 a.m. as caregiver expert Dr. Eboni Green discusses what it means to be psychologically well.

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.

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.
