Definition of Caregivers
Caregivers provide help to another person in need. The person receiving care may be an adult - often a parent or a spouse - or a child with special medical needs. Some caregivers are family members. Others are paid. They do a lot of things.

There is no illness that is not exacerbated by stress.

Definition of Caregivers

Caregiving is hard, and caregivers of chronically ill people often feel stress. They are "on call" 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you're caring for someone with mental problems like Alzheimer's disease it can be especially difficult. Support groups can help. (Source: medlineplus.gov)

Testimonials

Martha is fantastic to work with! I genuinely look forward to my appointments with Martha. I am so grateful that she takes the time to talk with me, genuinely listen to how I am feeling, and thinks outside the box when it comes to making progress on my health goals. My health has changed for the better over the past 3 years—all because of Martha.

Martha Southwick is amazing. She truly cares, she’s passionate, and she’s extremely knowledgeable. She’s been able to solve health puzzles for me that doctors haven’t been able to figure out for years.

Valerie Robinson

I work as a Therapist in the same business building and have had 2 clients speak very highly of her patient care. I’ve actually begun to recommend other clients that are interested in the medication aspect of healing while working through the mental part via talk-therapy or EMDR with my practice.

I’ve been going to Martha for over 13 years, I think that says it all. She is the best!
