The Self-Care Center for Professionals is a consultation service designed and established exclusively to provide services to professional caregivers to encourage, support and facilitate self-care, allowing you to focus on your well-being in order to maximize your own professional effectiveness and personal fulfillment.
Professional caregivers facilitate physical, emotional, mental, relational, education, and spiritual well-being. Our profession can be incredibly fulfilling and rewarding as we're providing vital and indispensable services to the global community.
It Can Be Challenging and Depleting
As professional caregivers, we have many challenges we encounter. Here are some of them:
The High Demand for Services
The Complexity of Services Needed
High and Often Unrealistic Expectations of Clients
Traumatic experiences of clients & patients
Ongoing Specialized Training Requirements
Changing & Complicated Bureaucratic Processes
The Burden of Confidentiality
Prolonged Exposure to Distressful Situations of Our Patients and Clients
Administrative, Financial, and Personnel Issues
Existential Struggles and Questions That Our Work Elicit
Professional caregivers function as family caregivers as well. This can add up to our stress and drain our energies that could impact us in many ways–inabilities to maintain a work-life balance and badly affect our health and well-being.
