Compassion fatigue, or feeling tired from caring too much, is becoming one of the biggest issues in healthcare today. We understand the meaning of compassion fatigue from the inside out, and we created the HEART WIDE OPEN – Self-Care for Caregivers handbook because we wanted to find a way to help rather than complain. We filled it with gentle reminders and simple suggestions you can do, even in the middle of a very busy day.

Some people say they feel relief just holding HEART WIDE OPEN in their hands! Others use it as a touchstone to remind them to remember to take good care of themselves too.
