Are you experiencing caregiver burnout? We all go through transitions in our lives and one of the more challenging ones is finding ourselves in the role of caregiver for one (or both) of our parents. Whether we’ve had time to prepare or we’ve found ourselves in this role without warning, we can quickly find ourselves experiencing a serious case of burnout.
Caregivers struggle with many issues including
*taking on new responsibilities,
*making crucial decisions,
*difficulty communicating about sensitive topics with those in our care as well as family members,
*love and devotion combined with stress and frustration,
*dealing with children and careers while actively caregiving,
*losing ourselves in the process.
The best caregivers are physically and emotionally healthy. But how can we find the time and resources to take care of ourselves when we are juggling so many responsibilities?
