Caregivers today are many times still in the workforce and frequently are overwhelmed with the tasks and emotional tugs at their very souls. Many of these caregivers still in our workforce and frequently are professionals at the top of their career, which comes with its own set of responsibilities and demands.
If you work with someone who is also a primarily caregiver (even a long distance caregiver) please take time to give them a break. It only takes a moment to notice they are having a bad day or have just received the third call this morning about which medication to take, what to eat oar when they are coming home. If you can (employment management permitting) give them your 15 minute morning or afternoon break, please do so, you will have a warm calm feeling in your heart and this will last longer than any 15 minutes of leisure you could have had.
If you are the supervisor of this person, please give them a break without fear of reprisal. This act will provide you with a human connection not easily found in many places of employment by employees which will lead to your confident and respectful employees. Please look for other ways you can help. You will pleasantly surprise to receive exceptional employee participation in production and loyalty.
