Open letter to Health Care Professionals:
Being responsible to provide support for non-Health Care Professional caregivers is a crazy reality for me. Here’s the logic:
- Say that you were always 100% correct in everything you did to support non-HCP caregivers. Say that other HCP organizations were also always 100% correct. When non-HCP caregivers were less than 100% effective at giving care, it could not be the fault of yourself or any HCP professionals however.
- Net result: the advantage for care-receivers is that they can now, unequivocally, place blame in the proper corner (i.e. on the non-HCP caregiver).
- Quite possibly you and the entire HCP structure do not agree with this logic. Similarly, it could be the case that non-HCP caregivers know exactly what is going on.
- Again, Net Result: the advantage for care-receivers is that they can now, unequivocally, place blame in the proper corner.
- When HCP’s initiate a system of support for non-HCP caregivers, unavoidably there are attached agendas, requirements,and hidden expectations. When the non-HCP caregiver initiates an attempt to identify the need for a support system, HCP’s do not acknowledge the validity of claims that status quo is not working.
- Net Result: only the financially independent care-receiver is able to obtain meaningful support from the HCP’s; for everyone else there is the non-HCP caregiver.
I don’t understand it but I do appreciate the interaction and patience you have shown me while clarity was being achieved for the logic. Thank you for the genuine face of concern you put on giving care.
