Avoiding Family Caregiver Burnout in Orlando, FL

Learn how a Comfort Keepers caregiver can save you from family caregiver burnout.

There are tens of millions of family caregivers in America who provide essential care and support for their senior loved ones. Sadly, the care and support often come at a cost to the health and well-being of the caregiver. The warning signs of this "caregiver burnout" includes:

  • A loss of interest in things that used to be highly enjoyable.
  • A feeling of hopelessness.
  • Constant fatigue, even after sleeping.
  • Increased irritability.
  • Feelings of frustration and even anger toward the senior receiving care.
  • Frequent illness.

Hiring A Comfort Keepers Caregiver

The good news is that there are things that can be done to avoid caregiver burnout or at least reduce the risk. Professional home senior care can help family caregivers with the physical support a senior needs, but they can also help with the educational component of caregiving. Hopefully, family caregivers will only provide long-term care once in their life, but professional senior care personnel provide caregiver services for a living. They are experts in the standard progression of illnesses, the progression of care, and the emotions that go with providing the care. By helping family caregivers understand what to expect and how to prepare themselves mentally and emotionally, the stress of the situation can be limited.

The best way to reduce the risk of caregiver burnout is for caregivers to set aside time to take care of their own physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs. When a senior requires care most of – or all of – the day, this can be difficult. Professional senior care personnel can provide the necessary support so the family caregivers can take some time off.

In short, caregiver burnout is a very serious issue that impacts the caregivers, and, therefore, the senior receiving the care. With professional senior care support, however, the risk of burnout can be limited and even avoided.
