Care for the Caregivers Program

The Care for the Caregiver (CCG) team provides 24 hour care to you, the associates and physicians at MedStar Health. If you are experiencing a stressful event or outcome during patient care or due to your work environment, we can help.

What is Care for the Caregiver?

The CCG team is comprised of volunteers from a variety of disciplines who have been trained in crisis support and stress management. The team includes physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, social workers and chaplains.

Ways to Cope with Stress

  • Remind yourself that it is OK that you are experiencing expected reactions to a stressful event.
  • Keep your life as routine as possible.
  • Physical exercise, along with relaxation, will help alleviate some physical reactions to stress.
  • Do something nice for yourself.
