Coping with one crisis after another can leave little time to appreciate or acknowledge what’s working and going well. Today, many caregivers are turning to Mindfulness - based stress reduction for family caregivers. Giving caregivers skills to manage the daily chronic stress and the emotional challenges of caregiving may provide a long-term benefit.
In-home Caregivers are often diagnosed with Repetitive Motion Disorder of the arms or wrists caused by continual lifting, turning, and meeting a patient’s general mobility needs. Patients suffer from stiff joints, sore muscles and circulatory problems. Therapeutic Massage helps both the caregiver and the patient deal with the mental and physical demands associated with caregiving.
