Millions of Americans are caregivers for disabled or sick adults. Caring for loved ones is a selfless task that requires a lot of time and attention. Caregiving requires sacrifices and increased responsibilities. Many caregivers ignore their own needs in their devotion to the care of their loved ones. This can lead to fatigue, burnout and health problems.
At Sangre de Cristo Hospice & Palliative Care, our mission is to provide comfort, care and compassion to caregivers. We host support groups and seminars in a number of our local communities and our speakers provide encouragement, address concerns and offer ways caregivers can take care of themselves during this challenging time. This outreach service is at no cost to those who attend.
