When to Take a Break from Caregiving

Caring for another person can be one of the most rewarding experiences we can have, and while we certainly can enjoy and take pride in the work that we do, it is so important that we don’t get burned out in the process. After all, if we are rundown or sick ourselves, we can’t provide the best care possible to those who may be counting on us.

If you find yourself feeling, rundown, anxious, tired, stressed, or burnt out, be sure to enlist help where you can. Ask another trusted friend or family member to take over for you, or perhaps even hire a professional caregiver to look after your loved one while you recuperate. That way, you won’t have to worry that your loved one isn’t getting proper care while you’re away, and you can just focus on feeling better.
