One of the most important factors in a patient’s recovery after a disability, injury or illness is the involvement and support of the family. Usually the patient’s family is the caregiver and thus plays a vital part in the rehabilitation process for a number of reasons: Positive attitudes and reinforcement from family members can inspire patients’ commitment to recovery and help them adapt to new physical challenges or limitations. Family support and encouragement can also help patients deal with issues of self esteem related to their condition. And because family members know the patient best they can assist the rehab staff in determining ways to motivate their loved one and maintain open communication between the patient and the rehabilitation team.

Approximately 65 million people—or 29 percent of the U.S. population—provide care for a loved one that is disabled, chronically ill or aged. Family members are affected by the patient’s condition and often become co-managers of the patient’s care. As a result, they may experience changes that create stress within the family. For example, a spouse or son or daughter in a caregiving role may need to rearrange their work schedule, decrease their hours, or even take a leave of absence to manage his or her responsibilities. There may be a change in living arrangements, issues that arise with childcare, financial problems due to medical bills or unemployment that contribute to pressures on the family.

Working together with the rehabilitation

But caregivers shouldn’t feel alone in their situation. By working together with the rehabilitation team, the patient and family can help lessen the adverse effects of these changes and work toward finding realistic solutions. First and foremost, families need to become educated about a loved one’s condition and prognosis and involved in the development of the rehabilitation plan. The more caregivers learn—by communicating with the health care team and taking advantage of educational programs offered at the hospital— the better prepared they are to care for their loved one at home. At Burke, for example, family members are encouraged to attend and participate in treatment and training sessions in order to become aware of their loved one’s progress and learn safe and effective techniques to assist them. Families and caregivers have ongoing access to information about available services and resources that can help the patient successfully transition to the next phase of rehabilitation.

In addition to education, family caregivers need support for the emotional and psychological aspects of their new responsibilities. While caring for a loved one is undoubtedly rewarding, it can also be exhausting and at times overwhelming. Caregivers commonly experience feelings of burden, isolation, loneliness, depression and anxiety and research has shown they are at risk for physical and emotional health problems.

One of the best ways for family caregivers to cope is to find a support group. Talking with others who face the same challenges can help caregivers feel less isolated and provide an opportunity to share resources and caregiving tips.

There are many benefits to participating in a support group:

  • Feeling less lonely
  • Social interaction in a safe environment
  • Sense of empowerment
  • Improved coping skills
