The Balancing Act
"Laughter is needed when you are a caregiver". This is one of the most important advices that Dr. Jon gives all caregivers on this fourth segment of the Caregiving special at the Balancing Act. We welcome you one more time to watch as Dr. Jon Segal talks about the importance for caregivers to take care of themselves.

Join us for the second segment of the Balancing Act where Dr. Jon Segal discusses the challenges of caregiving and how there is help and hope for all of those Americans who are taking care of a elderly or sick loved one. Caregiver stress deteriorates the health of the caregiver at a rapid pace when it is not addressed in time and properly. There are hundreds of resources out there, from support groups, reading material, and different services, to online medical supply stores that will deliver the products to your doorstep. Caregivers are not alone in their crusade, yet many do not know it because they have not been properly informed, and that is the purpose of The Balancing Act and Discount Medical Supplies. To make caregiver understand, that there are those, like us, who will be with them every step of the way.
There are no good or bad emotions in caregiving. Everything that a caregiver feels at one point is part of who they are and what makes them heroes, even their stress, their frustration, and their anger. They are individuals who have given up so much of their life to provide care for others without getting anything in return. Life as a caregiver has taken a toll on their health and even their happiness. They need to be understood and appreciated for what they do. In Dr. Segal's appearance on the Balancing Act he addressed most of the challenges caregivers go through and made a point to re-assure them that they are never alone.
