On Saturday, we had our first chat for men in a caregiving role. Richard (@kreisler) and Chris (@thpurplejacket) joined for a really interesting discussion. At one point, I asked Richard if health care professionals often overlook his role as his mom’s family caregiver. Yep, he said.
So, @ejourneys, who lurked during our chat (lurking means you’re simply reading the content of an online conversation), got to thinking. And, her thinking led to the creation of a badge you wear which identifies you as the primary family caregiver for your caree. The badge includes areas for you to insert your name and your caree’s name.
The badge fits standard-sized badge holders. Just download your badge below, print it out, cut out and fill in the badge, and place it with your choice of badge holder (pin, lanyard, etc.). Wear your badge in any setting that you want others to know you are the primary caregiver for your caree.
Because you are the most critical member of your caree’s health care team, you need your own badge.
