Caring for the Spirit of the Family Caregiver
Dennis E Beryl
The objective of this research project was to inquire about the lives and experiences of family caregivers, so a devotional could be developed that would speak directly to the needs of family caregivers as a way of caring for their spirits. The research looked at experiences of biblical characters, reviewed theological reflections, and examined survey and interview responses of family caregivers. Exploring "what caregivers need" opened the research to the very core of caring for the spirit of the family caregiver because needs based on real experiences were identified.
