Tips to Prevent Caregiver Burnout
What Is Caregiver Burnout?
How Can You Prevent Caregiver Burnout?
Instead of following your usual routine, do something different like visiting a café, getting a massage, or spending your afternoon at your friend’s house to talk about anything and everything under the sun besides work. It also helps to express how you’re feeling. Some prefer to write it down in a journal, while others like to share it with someone they can trust.
If the rest of your family members are open to the possibility of taking your parents to an independent living or assisted living community, raise this suggestion. This will significantly lift the responsibility off your shoulders. An independent living community is a place suitable for seniors who want to practice their independence but can get access to help whenever needed, such as housekeeping, laundry, grooming, transportation, and other activities of daily living.
