“Caregiver Burn Out”

Caring for a loved one can be very rewarding and challenging at the same time. Trying to juggle your busy schedule along with your mom or dad’s schedule can be overwhelming. Mom may need to be to the hair salon by eight o’clock in the morning while dad is scheduled to be at the barber shop at nine o’clock and you still have a business meeting across town at ten o’clock. When caring for our loved ones we often neglect attending to our own personal time and health care needs. We miss important doctor’s appointments, take excessive time off from work, do not eat healthy meals and we do not get the proper amount of sleep at night. These issues can lead to “Caregiver Burn OUT.” When you are physically and emotionally burnt out, you cannot be an effective caregiver for your elderly loved ones or care for yourself. Signs of caregiver burn out may include:
• Exhaustion
• Unable to concentrate
• Short tempered
• Sleepless nights
• Failing health
• Moodiness
• Headaches
• Thoughts of assisted living facility or nursing home placement for your loved ones
Don’t allow yourself to become burnt out. With the help of a professional licensed caregiver, you can take care of yourself and we will take care of your senior loved ones. They can remain in the comforts of their home with an extra set of hands. At home, they can age gracefully, enjoy the privacy of being in their own personal space, and continue their daily routines.
