Tools to Relive Family Caregiver
Resources the GCM Can bring to the family to Relive stress and burden from the family caregiver
The GCM role is to pinpoint the resources and part that family members can play in caregiving and caregiver burnout Solving the care receiver’s problems is in many ways solving each care giving family member’s problems. If a long distance daughter is guilty that she is not able to help her local caregiving sister who is the primary caregiver of their Mom, the GCM could suggest that the long distance daughter take on the role of managing all the finances and contracts or do a family newsletter or pay for private caregiver relief . That assignment of a role may help to diminish her guilt. If you can pinpoint a way an adult son ,who does not want to do personal care of his mother , can aide both his aging Mom and sister ,the main care receiver, by building a ramp and doing the grocery shopping,or paying for a private duty caregiver you are solving both the adult brother and sister’s problems along with your clients.
