My wife, Joan, having just woken up, was screaming, and hitting out wildly at the stranger in her bed. She was in a panic, her body shaking with fright. Get out! The man she perceived as a stranger was me, her husband of more than forty years. At that moment, she was experiencing something called Capgras Syndrome, in which patients become deluded that those close to them and their home as well are impostors. I had devoted my professional life as a psychiatrist and medical anthropologist to studying, teaching and practicing care for chronic conditions, including dementia. But this episode left me feeling broken and helpless. I struggled through this episode, like so many others, and endured a decade of care, driven on by my abiding love for Joan and by her own heroic efforts to keep our relationship alive and hold our family together. What I came to realize over the course of that terrible decade was that the humbling work of care rewarded me even as it sustained Joan. To be present and focused every day, every hour, every minute, gave me a central purpose in living. It was my emotional and moral education. I have come to understand care through this experience as well as those that reflect my half century as a health care practitioner, educator and researcher. And what I have come to see, as if a veil of ignorance had been stripped away from my eyes, is that care and caregiving are undergoing a profound crisis, a crisis that can be understood as an early sign of a dangerous yet near universal transformation in human experience and social institutions. What is most human—our vulnerability, our decency, indeed our very souls—is under great threat. When we first met, I was a striver, impatiently pursuing my academic and professional goals with little regard to those around me. Joan, on the other hand, had the soul of a carer, prioritizing relationships above all else and embracing their emotional and moral consequences. She infused light and meaning into every interaction. In the early years of our marriage, she was a sort of buffer between my exacting persona and the world, but over time, I slowly learned to take my cues from her, and engage more softly and constructively with the people in my life. Caring means both worrying and actively doing something about those worries. It means learning how to take care of ourselves and our local worlds. Caregiving for the frail elderly, vulnerable children, the infirm and chronically disabled involves providing physical acts of help bathing, feeding, exercising, sometimes just getting from one place to another , emotional insight and support, and moral solidarity. As often as not the most important thing offered by a caregiver is simply their complete presence. Underlying these acts is the ethical acknowledgment and affirmation of the person receiving care, the willingness to struggle daily to endure, and ultimately, the commitment to care for memories. Doctors spend very little time anymore in hands-on care. Oddly, for all the talk about quality of care, we have no direct measures of what makes for meaningful, transformative and moral acts of human care. Instead we routinely substitute institutional measures of efficiency—how many patients are seen, in how much time, with how many prescriptions or surgeries, and with outcomes measured in the narrowest ways if measured at all. Doctors feel shackled to the computer screen, insatiable in its demand for data that it so often does nothing with, leaving them unable to turn to the patient and make a connection. Endless frustrating administrative tasks eat up their time. They are on the phone with representatives of health plans and insurance companies rather than talking with families. Slavish reliance on diagnostic technologies has led to the atrophy and loss of confidence in their own diagnostic skills. And the looming peril of lawsuits has them looking over their shoulders at every turn. The result is widespread cynicism and burnout, especially among the more senior medical professionals. Worse yet, we know now that contemporary medical schools actually seem to beat the caring instinct out of young prospective doctors. Medical students get the message early on that caring is far down on the list of skills they will need to demonstrate, and so their interpersonal skills actually diminish. The shocking finding reported in in the journal Academic Medicine , that beginning students are routinely better at the core activities of care than graduating students reflects a reality that no school should tolerate. This weakness is reinforced in the residency years, during which young doctors are rewarded for the mastery of highly technical skills that will later, of course, become highly lucrative. The imperatives of an ancient profession to do good in the world have been replaced by a primary focus on professional security within a bureaucracy, with good benefits and hours, and protection from litigation and institutional censure. Patients are frustrated by the limited time physicians spend with them, by the poor quality of communication, by the complexities of negotiating a chaotic health care system, by costs of medications and procedures, and by the devastating sense that they are in it alone with no physicians willing or able to integrate their care. Just to get a clear diagnosis, Joan and I were shuffled through examinations by specialist after specialist, so many of whom never saw my wife as anything more than the sum of the notes and numbers on the medical chart in front of them. My most vivid memory of the patient experience is of waiting, endlessly waiting for a precious few moments with some expert who had little or nothing to tell us, before being sent off to wait for the next expert. Nothing could be so dehumanizing and demoralizing at what was the most frightening and vulnerable moment of our lives. As challenging as it was to get a clear diagnosis, getting a meaningful prognosis was worse. This is an unfortunate consequence of increasing specialization in medicine. It is the nature of long-term illness that its course in non-linear and unpredictable, with peaks and valleys, periods of relative calm and stability punctuated by moments of sudden and terrifying change. Early in my career, I discovered how much more I could do for my patients by visiting them in their homes, or even by asking more probing and detailed questions, to get a sense of their daily experience. Most importantly, they could have helped us set up a care routine that allowed us to focus our energy on the things that had the most meaning and importance for us. We need a revolution in health care that makes care and caregiving—not profit and bureaucratic procedure—the priority. This means a basic transformation in values and commitments.
Now if only I could find strong woman to take me under her wing and discipline me. I'm a good catch :. I actually said Wow out loud after reading this. And all the men in this family received this training? Wow again! To Bill just above, dennis responds: All the men in this family receive this training - we're a small group but are all very happy with our situation. We know of and socialize with other couples in FLRs. All have rules and rituals that suit the couple's purposes. It works for everyone involved. While there's a bit of ritual involved, it's really very practical training. Once trained, men know what to do and Women spend need only spend very little time managing. Hi dennis, This is a beautiful story because it shows how submission to Women can be a form of worship—a sacred act—and a privilege. And it brings up the thought of how much better the world would be if all men could be trained like this and Women could receive such service as a matter of course without question. I thought it was touching how you continue to rise up on the balls of your feet as a sign of worship to Joan. It shows the deep nature of the bond she established with you in granting you all the time in training you. Though I know some men will object, I thought the feminine touches in your uniform was very appropriate. After all, the idea is to give up all signs of male privilege. Finally, the image of a man doing a curtsey as a matter of everyday service is just too cute. The turnabout is delicious and totally appropriate for a man who embraces his inferiority in relation to Women. One question: what uniform do you wear all the time? Is the short shorts and everything else you describe? Thanks again for sharing this inspiring story. You will now lead a wonderful lifestyle with that training. How lucky are the men in that family to receive this training and to have the privilege of serving the women. I hope she continues this training to show you how to perform everything for a woman. Were or are there any clashes you know of where the rituals of a say Wife might clash with a Mother of one of your group. Are these rituals thrashed out between them? The male might become momentarily confused when performing a protocol. I really liked that she cut up your clothes according to her tastes and her protocols. It must have been quite a vivid demonstration. The experiences i had with Joan made me a better man, one who was prepared to properly serve the Women of the family. For me it was very fulfilling; i was pleased to 'give up my man card' and follow Joan. The training and everything that goes with it was intended to put my role in relation to the Women in proper perspective. And that's what the apron does, it removes all doubt as to who is in charge. Every time i put on an apron it comes home to me that my job is to serve. As i've written in past posts i have a managerial job with lots of authority but am happy to leave that at the door, put on the apron chosen for me, and do as i'm told - very satisfying! As far as the uniform is concerned it's basically just an apron over whatever i might normally wear plus the slippers. It has the impact of reinforcing my role. Joan insisted on cutoffs and some of that had to do with Her showing who was the Boss by trimming my brand new pants to her near Daisy Duke length; She also cut off two other pairs of my pants with the same end in mind. She did it because She could, knowing that i knew i couldn't do - in Her words - "a damn thing about it". A slight stoop isn't to be cute, it is to show reverence and respect; it's not every time but a number of times a day to show reverence and respect. One thing that Joan didn't want was too much ritual since She didn't want it to get in the way of my doing my work but She also wanted me to "know my place". Finally, men don't necessarily need this training to make the world a better place; they can accomplish that by simply listening to Women and acting on what they - men - hear! And there is not turning back! I love the formality and ritual. The enforcing of serving attire must really put you in the right frame of mind. How amusing it must be for the Women to see, especially a newly trained, male, stoop and bow as if he's a well trained puppy doing a trick. I also think it can be a great bonding practice. It provides structure and order to the household and it takes a strong leader to enforce it as meticulously as Joan did.
