Forgotten Family Caregivers

The purposes of this article is to discuss the topic of family caregiver recovery and inspire further development of the concept to promote greater awareness of the process of caregiver recovery in order to guide healthcare professionals to better serve family caregivers. 

The article offers information on the family caregivers who are individuals, such as family members, partners, friends, and neighbors, who take care of loved ones with functional, emotional, and/or cognitive limitations due to illness or injury. Topics include that family caregivers experience many of the same risks and challenges of caregiving that seem to extend into the transitional life phase of caregiver recovery such as family caregiving risks, compassion fatigue and relationships.
