Nature of Caregiving

Nature of Caregiving
Caregiving takes many forms. Many of us help older, sick, or disabled family members and friends every day. We know we are helping, but we don't think of ourselves as caregivers. We are glad to do this and feel rewarded by it, but if the demands are heavy, over time we can also become exhausted and stressed. We think we should be able to handle caregiving roles on top of busy work and family schedules and begin to feel guilty and depressed as our stamina wanes.

Nature of caregiving

About 44 million Americans provide 37 billion hours of unpaid, "informal" care each year for adult family members and friends with chronic illnesses or conditions that prevent them from handling daily activities such as bathing, managing medications or preparing meals on their own.

Testimonials

I’ve been to many dental practices over the years but I was especially impressed by Martock Dental Practice. Lakshmi was very friendly, explained everything very well and I left feeling confident with the plan going forward. She also fixed my dental pain within the same appointment! The reception staff were polite and helpful too. All in all, it was a very positive experience.

I’ve had a couple of visits to the dentist recently having an extraction and replacement filling,my dentist Dooha is a lovely lady who gave me excellent treatment, I’m a nervous patient but Dooha gave me the confidence to sit there and have both treatments done, also the dental nurse was excellent as well, together they have made me feel confident to have any treatments if needed in the future.

Today I had an extraction which was swift and painless. Immediately prior to the procedure, Dooha took time to talk about my tooth issue, and generally put me at ease- as much as one can be in the circumstances- which I much appreciated. The staff are always welcoming and helpful; we are very fortunate to have such a good dental practice here in Martock.
