In this age of digital networking, caregivers are rarely alone. However, it can feel very isolating to work in unfamiliar areas. If one does their homework, they can usually find others who are working in the same area or nearby. These people and organizations are not only resources for those who need care, but they can also be a support system for caregivers as well.
Local Medical and Mental Health Resources
What does medical and mental health care look like in your destination area? Is it readily available or sparse? Is it easily accessible or difficult to reach? Is it available to all or are some community members excluded from services?
The answers to these questions contain valuable information as caregivers look to care in the best way possible for those in the community.
Local Pastoral Care Resources
What religious leaders and guides are available in the area? You should be aware of a variety of options whether they agree with your belief system or not. Always remember that the ethics of care in crisis expect caregivers to provide spiritual resources at the request of the survivor, not at the mandate of the caregiver!
