Caregivers need care too!
Friday, February 17th is National Caregiver’s Day. It is important to recognize that caregivers are an important part of the recovery process. Caregivers experience high stress which can affect their physical and mental health causing illness and problems which can interfere with their ability to provide support and care to their loved one in the recovery process. As we recognize caregivers, it is important to provide them with the support and information they need to maintain their own physical and mental health.
The programs of Brookhaven Hospital are available for the treatment of behavioral health, substance use and eating disorders. Families and caregivers are included in our approach when appropriate. Brookhaven provides inpatient and outpatient services.
