Health and wellness expert Peter Mangiola, RN, MSN, has released a new ebook discussing causes and strategies to overcome guilt experienced by caregivers.
Online PR News – 28-February-2015 – Medford, NJ – Peter Mangiola, RN, MSN, a recognized senior health and wellness professional with over a quarter century of experience in the health care field, has published his first book, The 7 Causes of Caregiver Guilt, which will be available as an ebook on Amazon and Barnes & Noble in the near future.
Peter wrote this book in response to the impending crisis affecting the 65 million people, 29% of the U.S. domestic population, who currently are providing care for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member or friend.
Not only are financial resources being stretched to the limit, but perhaps the most devastating cost that is not being addressed is the cost to the caregivers’ life quality and emotional stability.
The Wall Street Journal reported on this invisible crisis, saying, “Senior citizens have become the largest and fastest-growing segment of the U.S. population, a demographic shift that influences everything from consumer behavior to health-care costs, according to this Census release.”
The invisible psychological and emotional deficit that is borne by this nation’s caregivers is being ignored, but eventually will surely outstrip the emotional resources of these living room heroes.
“This is clearly an iceberg of titanic proportions. I come into contact with people struggling with caregiver guilt daily. Guilt and how it deceptively takes control of your life creates havoc for both those who care and those who receive the care. If you are a caregiver, you are likely an ‘other-centered’ person who is highly responsive to the needs of those around you, and yet your care needs receive scant attention by society,” Mangiola says.
Mangiola’s book is a 911 caregiver alarm that must be acknowledged and dealt with.
For many years, Peter owned and operated two well-known senior care agencies in New Jersey. Peter has an extensive and in-depth professional experience in cognitive, behavioral, emotional and physical issues, including:
• Early to Advanced Stage Alzheimer’s Disease
• Child and Adult ADHD
• Children with Learning Disabilities (dyslexia, autism, Asperger’s, etc.)
• Developmentally Disabled Adults
• Many more…
Mangiola is now a health and wellness consultant and head of One-to-One LifeCare, a firm that helps match consumers with the health care options that best fit their needs.
Mangiola is sharing much of his knowledge and experience gained over 25-plus years in the medical field in his new ebook: The 7 Causes of Caregiver Guilt. He begins his book by defining guilt and how negative guilt wields a great deal of control over our lives. He goes on to discuss the 7 primary drivers of caregiver guilt and lays out several effective strategies for overcoming them.
“In my years as a caregiver, I know first-hand how easy it is to get burnt out on the job,” Mangiola continues. “And when the burnout sets in, feelings of guilt around the people we are caring for often accompany it. My goal was to create a comprehensive guide that will help other caregivers overcome guilt and have more rewarding and fulfilling careers. My book also discusses common issues with family caregivers, particularly those caring for elderly loved ones.”
Mangiola believes that sharing his insights will bring hope to family caregivers and encourage career caregivers to stay passionate about what they are doing.
“I have always had a passion for taking care of others, and I know there are many out there like me who love what they do. Unfortunately, a lot of them give up on their careers because they have difficulty dealing with some of the stresses involved. My hope is that this trend can be reversed and more caregivers will keep going and overcome the challenges they face on the job.”
Peter Mangiola is making is the first chapter of The 7 Causes of Caregiver Guilt available for download free of charge along with a free online caregiver audit.
“I want to get this information into the hands of as many people (who need it) as possible. For this reason, I am giving a chapter away, no strings attached, along with the free caregiver audit assessment until we release it on Amazon.com later this year.”
