Are You Suffering From Caregiver Burnout?

caregiver-help-1

November is National Family Caregivers Month, a time when we honor those who care for our wounded, ill, injured, or those who have special needs. Being a caregiver comes with enormous responsibility. Caring for a loved one can be very rewarding, but the demands can also be overwhelming. If the stress of caregiving is not dealt with properly it can take a toll on your health and state of mind.

That is why the theme of this year’s National Family Caregivers Month is respite. As a caregiver, if you do not take time to care for yourself it can be incredibly difficult to care for your loved ones. It is important to take time to relax, re-energize, get enough sleep, and when necessary, turn to peers for support.
