The diverse responsibilities of a family caregiver can be overwhelming
Family caregivers often take on many roles. Being a personal care assistant, nurse, therapist, treasurer and family member all at once, 24/7, can be overwhelming. This is especially because caregivers often put the needs and interests of our loved ones ahead of ourselves, neglecting self-care.
Besides taking a toll on our health, caregiver burnout also affects the quality of care that our loved one receives.
Caregiving can be a physically and emotionally demanding journey, but remember that you are not alone. Many forms of help are available.
