Caregiving can be stressful because the well-being of your aging loved one is in your hands. Hence, the burnout due to the pressure of the piled stress. But don’t let it pull you down. There is help along the way.
Caregivers sometimes become too focused on their patients and eventually forget to take care of themselves. As they pour too much of their time into their patients’ health and well-being, they fail to detox from stress.
If you feel the following signs, then it is an indication that you are experiencing caregiver stress and you need a break.
- low to lack of energy
- feeling overwhelmingly fatigued
- extreme weight loss or weight gain due to changes in eating habits
- a feeling of hopelessness and frustration
There is nothing wrong with taking a break every once in a while. Respite care is offered by home care providers. There are even agencies that will send certified nursing assistants on your behalf to take care of your elderly loved ones while you are on your break.
