As you may have read on Facebook...

This month’s article focuses on caregiver burnout. Being a caregiver can be exhausting and take a toll on a caregiver’s health. I have had a few weeks experience of caregiver exhaustion. I know it is a very small sample compared to the 24 hour caregiving a lot of you are doing for your loved ones.

As you may have read on Facebook, Matthew burned his leg while riding a 70cc motorcycle. Because the motorcycle is smaller, I wasn’t thinking about it the same as I would have thought of a larger motorcycle. Matthew was riding in shorts and hit a bump out in the pasture. The bike fell on his legand burned his thigh.

Caregiver Burnout

Caregivers have an incredible responsibility; one that many saintly people choose to do for a living, and it's also one that many are thrust into unprepared. Whether it's taking care of a parent, a child, or a spouse, everyone can agree that while this duty is as stressful as it is necessary. As such, many caregivers can become afflicted with a real condition called caregiver burnout, which is a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion that can also change the caregiver's attitude from positive to negative.

Burnout most often occurs when caregivers aren't able to get the help they need, or if they try to do more than they can, either physically or fiscally. Burned out caregivers may be fatigued, stressed, anxious, and depressed. Many also have accompanying feelings of guilt if they spend time for themselves instead of caring for their loved ones.
