Preventing Caregiver Burnout
Find someone you trust, such as a friend, co-worker or neighbor, to talk about your feelings and frustrations.
Set realistic goals and accept that you may need help with caregiving. Turn to others for help with some tasks.
Be realistic about your loved one's disease, especially if it is a progressive disease like Parkinson's or Alzheimer's.
Don't forget about yourself! Set aside time for yourself, even if it's just an hour or two. Remember, taking care of yourself is not a luxury. It is an absolute necessity.
