Family members, Significant others, Friends, and individuals certified in being a caregiver, take on so much caring for individuals diagnosed with a C. difficile (Clostridioides difficile, CDI, C. diff. ) infection – from cooking and cleaning to managing medications, and managing doctor appointments. Doing it all for someone you care about can be beautiful and fulfilling, but it can also cause fatigue and feelings of guilt or worry. “When I can’t be there, are they safe?” “Do they have what they need?” “Are they lonely?”
As our population ages and the number of those with severe health issues increases, more caregivers find themselves in similar situations, especially during the coronavirus pandemic.
Research shows us that caregivers need to take proper care of themselves to ensure proper care for others. At C Diff Foundation we’ve developed a special C. diff. Global TeleSupport session for caregivers around the globe. The program is accessible from 57 countries and along with the Nutrition and Physician support available, the caregiver session will enable individuals caring for those diagnosed with a C. difficile infection (Clostridioides difficile, C. diff., CDI) practical and valid information to support their efforts and dedication. You can attend all sessions offered for free to learn more about compassion fatigue, preparing for care, taking care of yourself as a caregiver, and how to prepare for extended time away from your loved one. We hope you find this support session as we reach out to the care-team making a difference in the support of individuals diagnosed, being treated for a C. diff. infection, experiencing recurrent Clostridioides difficile infections, and the recovery phase.
