Prevent Caregiver Fatigue and Ask for Help

Fighting Caregiver Fatigue

Are you feeling burned out from taking care of an elderly family member or loved one? While you may not hesitate to take on this challenge, it can take a toll on your emotional and physical health, especially when caregiving is not your primary role. When you focus all of your energy on acting as a caregiver, you often forget to take care of yourself, ultimately causing your emotional and physical health to suffer. This is called caregiver fatigue and it is all too common among family caregivers. To prevent this, it is important to know the signs of caregiver fatigue and how you can prevent it. 

Identifying caregiver fatigue is the first step to finding a solution that will improve your wellbeing, as well as the wellbeing of your loved one.
