Avoid Caregiver Stress
Are You Suffering From Caregiver Burnout?
By Starla Fitch for Sunlight Senior Care
If you have people you love who are aging, you may expect that eventually, they may need your help with maintaining a home, paying bills, or even coordinating medical care. But even if you are expecting it, a sudden medical situation can throw your life into chaos.
If you fail to do the following, you can experience caregiver burnout?
· Get proper rest and nutrition. You can’t take care of someone else if you aren’t taking care of yourself.
· Exercise regularly. Even if you only exercise for 10 minutes a day, it’s a great way to relieve stress and make sure you are staying healthy too.
· Try stress-reduction techniques. Meditation, prayer, yoga, tai chi, and even communing with nature for a few minutes a day can help reduce stress and recharge your batteries.
· Ask for help. Reach out to friends and family for breaks. Check-in with your loved one’s medical providers for local resources or support groups.
