As a Bethel MBA Instructor and healthcare professional, I am grateful for the steady hearts and hands who have sacrificed so much during the pandemic, especially those like you who serve in long-term care communities.

A Primary Caregiver Gives Thanks responds to the passionate sacrifice you and others in healthcare have shown during these difficult days.
While I recently served as my wife’s 24/7 primary caregiver, I was reminded of caregivers in action, which led me to write this article.
Be encouraged as I reflect upon the ways caregivers like you have served and are serving in such amazing ways. Please know your day-to-day, 24/7 efforts really make a lasting difference in the lives of those you serve.

As an ongoing encouragement, I would like to invite you to join the upcoming webinar called Combating COVID-19 with Key Performance Indicators: A Long-Term Care Perspective on April 29 at Noon (CST) sponsored by the Bethel University MBA program.

During this interactive,1-hour presentation, you will learn:

  1. How COVID-19 has affected long-term care overall, and

  2. Provide ways to maximize your time, finances, and energy as a caregiver during these unprecedented times.

Registration is free, and you are welcome to attend. Join me for this timely event to find encouragement as a leader and a caregiver. If you have any questions, please let me know.
