Coping with Caregiver Burnout and Life Transitions?
ARE YOU FEELING OVERWHELMED due to CAREGIVER BURNOUT?
Every night you fall into bed just hoping to get a decent night’s sleep after an exhausting day caring for your elderly parent while trying to maintain your own household. Sleep does not come due to the near-constant worried thoughts about finances and getting your parent to all those medical appointments with the ever-dwindling time off you have left. Just last week your boss spoke to you about coming in late when you had to take your Dad to the ER.
There is not enough Time
When will you find the time to run errands and go grocery shopping after work when the kids have sports, and you need to stop at Dad’s to set up his pills for the week?
Nobody is Happy
It feels like you cannot make anyone happy. Not your spouse who complains you are no fun anymore. Not your kids who seem to pick up on your stress and act out all the time. Not even your Dad who never says thank you and just acts angry ever since your Mom died last year.
Do You Have Caregiver Burnout?
Caregiver Burnout leads to feelings of depression, anxiety, and guilt, and isolation. You find it harder and harder to find time to be the good spouse, daughter, and parent you know you want to be. Your performance at work is slipping. It is a struggle to manage all your competing responsibilities.
You feel lost in the shuffle, and if you were truly honest with yourself, you know you do not even make it into the shuffle.
You Need Support (You Needed it Months Ago)
What if you could talk to someone who really understands what you are saying, someone who listens, someone who asks the right questions? Someone who has the experience, skills, and expertise to collaborate with you so you can choose to change things, regaining a sense of control, and move forward in your life again.
