Caring for the Caregiver
Are you a Caregiver or do you know someone who is?
Caregivers play an important role in supporting people with illnesses. Because caregiving is inherently stressful, caregivers require their own support and guidance to help them understand and cope with the situation and to reduce the amount of strain that they experience in the caregiving role.
In 2003 a study revealed that over 45 million people are in a caregiving role for their family. That same study estimated that 80 percent of all care received by older Americans is provided by family members - spouses, children, grandchildren and other relatives.
Caregiving can take a toll on any person. Because caregivers are so focused on another person's illness, they dismiss their own health complaints or concerns. Most caregivers suffer from lack of energy, reduced sleep, stress and/or panic attacks, aches and pain, depression, headaches and weight gain/loss.
At Naturopathic Specialists we are aware that there is a lot involved with caregiving and we are sensitive to the needs of the caregiver. Which is why we created a program intended to replenish and rebuild caregivers so that they may continue with their support task to those with illnesses.
We also offer a variety of care options that are intended to improve vitality, aid in stress reduction, improve the quality of sleep, enhance immune functions and offers support physically and emotionally. These care options include acupuncture, massage therapy, hydrotherapy, nutrient IVs and a host of other options that may fit different caregiver situations.
In an effort to get the care to the caregivers that they need, we offer the "Caregiver Coupon". This coupon makes our more restorative healing modalities available to all caregivers at a discounted cost. So those who care can take the time and also care for themselves.
If you are a caregiver or know someone who is, give us a call to discuss what care options we have that could best help the situation.
You are not alone.
There are many resources available to you through Naturopathic Specialists and through your local community. We can provide you with a list of those resources as well as provide you with the tools you need to replenish and empower yourself during this time.
