Caring for Our Carers

Today I thought I’d shine a light on some unsung heroes – the Carers who do it for love.
Do you know a someone who is a Carer, who cares for someone as part of their love and commitment for that person?
  • You may be a Carer. You may know someone who is a Carer.
  • What if we had the opportunity to show them how much we care by gifting a Carer with a Bowen Therapy Gift Voucher to help relieve some of their stress and to have some time for self?
  • Gift Vouchers purchased for a Carer will be reduced by 30%. This voucher will be our gift along with an Australian Bush Flower Essence called Carers Essence.

At different stages in our lives we will be either, the one cared for or the person caring for another, in some way shape or form. I am sure we all know of someone or have been that person in the role of Carer. There are people out there caring for others in either paid or unpaid roles each and every day and I take my hat off to them for providing care for those
in need. The response to such a comment is often, “But they’re my mother, father, child, grandparent, close family friend, of course I will do my best to care for them.”

I think this quote is on point: 
“There are only four kinds of people in the world. Those who have been caregivers. Those who are currently caregivers. Those who will be caregivers and those who will need a caregiver.” – Rosalyn Carter

Caring for loved ones is a big challenge particularly if there are special needs involved. The challenge of coping with the day-to-day needs of a family member with dementia, Parkinsons, or other degenerative disorder or lifelong physical restrictions, weighs heavily on the person caring for them which is most often a family member, a loved one. This
change of roles for the Carer is challenging; the partner or even a child may now be the Carer for the person in need of help. In the role of Carer we can’t forget the parents caring for their children, young or adult, with special needs, such as; chronic illness, terminal
illness, physical challenges, mental health issues to name but a few.

Parents or carers are ‘stretched’ as well, on all levels: physically, emotionally, mentally.

These Carers are all endeavouring to ensure their loved ones’ medical needs are being met; juggling medical appointments, ensuring any medications are always up to date and given at the right times, attending to all the personal needs of their loved one and endeavouring to help their emotional needs too. Finances, too, are often stretched to the limit with most needing to rely on help from support agencies. Applying for and gaining such support can be a long and tedious process.

So if you have been reading this and thought of someone who would benefit from a relaxing, stress-releasing Bowen Therapy session with Bowen Health Therapy remember we are offering:

30% off a Gift Voucher, for a Bowen Therapy session and a bottle of Carer’s Essence, purchased for someone in a voluntary caring role.  BOOK BY 18 DEC 2020

If you are a Carer you too can make an appointment for a Bowen Therapy session with the 30% discount by mentioning this newsletter. Whilst being a caregiver is undoubtedly a significant act of love and commitment it is also places considerable strain on the carer physically, emotionally and mentally.

If you or someone you know would like to be able to thank or gift a Carer for everything they do you can arrange a Gift Certificate by calling Katrina on: 0438148842.

In all the busyness of life remember too to take care of you.

Take care and Kind Regards,
