Take Time to Care for the Caregiver
Date:12/1/2008

onally, many feel strongly that the companionship helps keep the sick or elderly in better health. "My main responsibility is to keep her company," said another family caregiver. "I've been the one she talks to the most. That's what makes her feel good."

While there are many services to assist caregivers who are pinched for personal time and finances, most don't know where to look. Some say, "there's no time for me to have fun ... you begin to feel depressed ... we don't know where to go for services."

"We need to focus on how to help the Hispanic community access information, services and opportunities such as caregiver training so that they can better respond to the needs of their loved one," said Dr. Ana Fuentevilla, Medical Director for Evercare. "Our study showed that diabetes, which accounts for twice the mortality rate among Latinos as the general population, is the number one reason that Hispanics become caregivers. Our goal is to ensure that education about chronic illnesses like diabetes or dementia and the preventive care for both the heath of the loved one and the caregiver is communicated." For example, Evercare(TM) Solutions for Caregivers is an innovative program designed to ease the burden of caregiving so that working caregivers can remain productive at work and the elderly can live independently at home. More than 500,000 working caregivers have access to this program provided through more than 500 employers nationwide. Evercare, which has been providing health care plans for Older Americans for more than 20 years, was created to help the elderly maintain their independence and best possible health.
