Caregivers are individuals who provide care to an individual who needs assistance. Caregivers can be professionals but are often unpaid individuals who support a loved one through an illness or the last phase of life. The experience can be immensely gratifying and rewarding as well as challenging and stressful. By anticipating the demands of end-of-life, caregiving can shift the journey to one in which support focuses on acceptance and healing.
The goal of this course is to review family and caregiver issues, explain patient rights and the ethical principles of caregiving, examine behavioral, nutritional, and safety issues of caregiving, and explore integrative health methods of supporting caregiver well-being.Course Objectives - Upon completion you will be able to do the following:
