What is Caregiver Fatigue?

Learn more about caregiver fatigue and tips for avoiding burnout in the Sacramento area.

Caring for another family member comes from a place of love and dedication. Still, when caregivers put too much time, finances, and resources into taking care of their loved ones on their own, this can lead to physical and emotional stress and exhaustion. With this in mind, it’s essential to understand the benefits of at home care service professionals but if you are a caretaker for one of your loved ones, let’s take a look at what fatigue is and how to avoid it.

Signs of Caregiver Burnout

  • Increased Irritability and impatience
  • Constant physical and mental exhaustion
  • Difficulty making decisions
  • Neglecting personal needs
  • Gaining or losing weight
  • Withdrawing from friends of family

Leaving this situation without a solution can cause resentment towards the one you are caring for. Living with poor emotional wellbeing can affect all aspects of life at work, home, and more. It is crucial to emphasize boundaries in schedules and to set time aside for self-care.

Tips for Fighting Fatigue

  • Ask for help
  • Set aside time for self-care
  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Exercise regularly
  • Spend time with friends
  • Seek out a therapist  
  • Join a support group
