For someone who is not trained to provide care, for example friends or adult children, getting stressed and burned out can be expected. But for professional caregivers, don’t expect to be immune to burnouts. Here are a few tips from WebMD to avoid caregiver burnout. First and foremost, take time for yourself. It allows you to recharge your battery and reduce your stress. Sometimes a caregiver would get overwhelmed but performing tasks that are beyond their skill set. As a result, knowing your limits can greatly reduce your stress. If you really want to be able to help but is simply overwhelmed, ask for help. A few hours of time off can just be the thing to help you recharge both physically and mentally. Lastly, try to stick to a routine, allowing you to be in control, knowing what to expect, and a sense of security.
