While it’s extremely rewarding, being a carer isn’t always easy. Looking after loved ones as they age can be physically and emotionally draining and it’s normal to experience caregiver stress from time to time. When you dedicate your time to caring for another you need to be wary of burnout.
As a carer, it’s important to find balance, and respite care has many benefits that can play a pivotal role in maintaining your well-being and ensuring you can continue to provide the best care possible for your loved one.
Being a caregiver can be incredibly demanding. As you juggle the responsibilities, emotional strain and lack of personal time you may experience stress. This stress can manifest in many different ways, from exhaustion to irritability, sleeping problems and even physical health issues. It’s vital to recognise these signs to ensure your health and well-being.
