Balancing Life as a Caregiver

Comments (2)

Although it may seem nearly impossible to find the time, you can’t expect to focus all your energy on someone else without taking some time out for yourself. You will surely experience caregiver burnout. Neglecting your own needs often results in health problems, along with feelings of depression, loneliness, grief, anger, sadness, fatigue, anxiety, frustration, guilt or fear. It is even harder for an aging caregiver. Added stress can make it difficult to function at home, at work or when caring for a loved one.  Caregiver jobs are rewarding but the stress can unexpectablely hit you at the worse times. You should manage your own health like you manage their doctor schedules.

Get yearly checkups and focus on health conditions like diabetes, heart health and weight management. How you take care of yourself will reflect in how you give care to someone else. Check out these caregiver health tips.
