Being able to help someone is the ultimate satisfaction for many people. That’s is why so many people enjoy being a caregiver to help out seniors in need. However, just because it is a satisfying job does not mean it is not a stressful one. In fact, far too many caregivers are experiencing stress but ignoring the importance to deal with these stress. If left untreated, these stress can lead to burnouts, and it will affect both your health as well as the quality of caregiving provided. If you are a caregiver, and you are often feeling tired, overwhelmed, irritable, and have irregular sleep pattern, these might be signs of caregiver stress. The main goal to prevent burnout is to realize that you are stressed out. Once you do, seek help and relief from others. Whether it is finding respite caregiving help from another caregiver, finding ways to relax during off times, changing to a healthier lifestyle, or even professional help, don’t be afraid to ask for help because it is ultimately in the best interest of the stressed out caregiver and the person they are supporting.
