Avoiding Caregiver Burnout

Nov 28, 2017

As your parents age, you likely find yourself taking on more responsibilities to keep them safe and happy, especially if they still live on their own. For adult children of seniors who need assistance with daily tasks, it’s important to take a little time out periodically in order to relax. Help at Home offers caregiver respite to help families when they need a break. If you take care of senior family members as well as your kids, while also balancing duties at home and at work, you’ll want to make an effort to carve out sufficient time for yourself, otherwise you might find yourself stressed out. Here are some of our tips for avoiding caregiver burnout:

  • First, don’t keep your troubles to yourself. Talk with a trusted friend or relative. Unacknowledged stress will lead to burnout, but taking time to communicate with close friends can help combat the effects of stress.
  • Establish a schedule. Managing your time and creating a set schedule can help so the daily responsibilities of caring for your children, home and aging parents don’t seem so overwhelming.
  • Consider arranging for respite care so you can give yourself occasional breaks. When friends, neighbors or relatives are unavailable, Help at Home’s in-home senior care services may be just what you need so you can rest and recharge your batteries.

You don’t have to do everything, it’s okay to ask for help. Consider having professional, in-home caregivers step in and help when you need it. If you have any questions or concerns about caregiver burnout or would like to arrange for some help in the form of in-home senior care, the staff at Help at Home is here for you.
