Today’s Caregiver, the first national magazine for all family and professional caregivers, and caregiver.com announce the 20th anniversary Caregiver Friendly® Award recipients. The Caregiver Friendly® Awards are designed to celebrate products, services, books and media created with the needs of caregivers in mind.
OCN is honored to have won a 2021 Caregiver Friendly® Award in the Service category. This award signifies that the value of supporting family caregivers, not only helping a caregiver care for their loved ones, but also improving his or her quality of life in the process.
"The average caregiver is responsible for over $40,000 in health related expenditures each year, in either personal or directed funds" Says Gary Barg, Today’s Caregiver magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, "This award is designed to help family caregivers recognize and reward those organizations who will care for them in as committed a manner as they care for their loved ones."
OCN provides family caregivers (“FCGs”) training and education, helps develop self-care skills, access to other professionals and community resources, and benefits of trusted support for those times when they just need a break. FCGs receive a badge for completing and demonstrating competency for chronic and acute health conditions. Having this knowledge not only reduces the stress on the FCG, it leads to reduced healthcare costs as the FCG can help patients maintain their highest functioning level while avoiding adverse events. Health systems, employers, and value based “at risk” providers are looking to the FCG as a key component in bending the cost curve for these patients.
Equally important is the health and well-being of the FCG. OCN provides for wellness, spiritual, and physical support tools, and education for the FCG to help in caring for themselves. This leads to lower stress and a healthier lifestyle for the FCG ensuring they will be capable of continuing their crucial role as a FCG.
