The Different Emotions of a Caregiver


No job is ever easy, and different challenges ensue in life no matter what we do.  Therefore, it is common for caregivers to feel different emotions when different scenarios come up while helping an elderly person.  When a job is done well and you were able to help improve the quality of life for the care recipient, it can be a very rewarding feeling. Other times, the elderly person may not be cooperating, acting angrily, and just refuses help and not listen to your instructions.  In such cases, it can be very frustrating for the caregivers to do their job properly and leading to various negative emotions.  But don’t worry, here are some creative ways to deal with these negative emotions from  Screaming out loud can help let go of some frustration withholding inside you, maybe scream into a pillow or scream in the car with windows closed.  One can also release some tension by going for a run or even with a kickboxing class.  Lastly, take a little time for yourself and relax, whether it is by going to the beach or a stroll in the park.
