This is just one of many examples where she demonstrates incredible work ethic, dedication and caringness.

I'd like to find an actual english word that conveys the meaning of the made-up word "caringness". Can you please suggest a few options?

    It might help if you write a sentence or two with the made up word in the context you are thinking of. – user3169 Sep 7 '14 at 4:26
  • "Doting" might be appropriate, but it wouldn't work in certain sentence constructions. – Watercleave Sep 7 '14 at 16:29

    Can you describe how you'd like to use the word? – snailcar Sep 7 '14 at 21:37
  • Please edit your question, and explain more about the "flavor" of caring you are talking about. People are starting to guess, in part because there are many ways to show caring: an employee can care about his work or his company; a mother can care about her child, or about her own mother; a nurse can show care to a patient; a community can show caring to someone who has just experienced a disaster or loss. Some elaboration along with an example sentence would help a lot. – J.R. Sep 7 '14 at 21:59
  • There's an example sentence now, but after reading the comments re Jolenealaska's Empathy answer, I think there needs to be more elaboration or sample sentences, to really nail down what's being asked for. (Empathy, devotion, caring...) – A.Beth Feb 16 '15 at 22:30

How about Empathy?

I like that word, and the sense it conveys.

  • What I am looking for is effusive caringness, closer to dedication. Any tips? Thanks – MMM Sep 7 '14 at 3:54
  • @MMM You mean like how a caretaker or parent might provide for the needs of the one for whom they're caring? – Jolenealaska Sep 7 '14 at 3:58

I believe that "caring" is the word you want.

It can be used as an adjective: "She is a caring person."

It can also be used as a noun: "She exhibited a high level of caring."
