Supporting the Caregiver Through Stress Management Strategies
Summary of course: Health care teammembers have often referred to the family caregiver as “the second patient.” This course reviews the significant burden of stress facing the caregiver and its correlation to the resident receiving care by the health care team. Strategies will be shared for the health care team member to support the caregiver, to include a range from verbal feedback to recommendations for managing the stress so that they can better care for their own physical, mental and emotional health.
Learning objectives include:
- Cite the physical effects which may often result from the stress of caregiving.
- Identify signs and symptoms of the unmanaged stress points.
- Recognize potential events that trigger increased disturbances.
- List strategies to support caregivers, for improved care for themselves as well as for their family member.
