Caregiver Support

If you are a caregiver to a family member or friend, you are likely at some time to experience caregiver fatigue.  Listed below are several symptoms of caregiver burnout that you are likely to encounter at some time while in your role as caregiver.

  • Emotional Exhaustion
  • Resentment
  • Loss of personal identity
  • Frustration
  • Sadness with increased fatigue
  • Impatience
  • Emotionality
  • Change in sleep habits
  • Change in eating habits
  • Anxiety or Fear
  • Feeling you have lost your life and will never get it back
  • Change in relationship with significant others
  • Anger

 

These are only a few of the negative feelings or thoughts that can occur during your role as caregiver.  If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and they are affecting your relationships, your work responsibilities, or your social life, then you might benefit from a short series of individual counseling sessions which provides you with a safe and secure place to talk about your experience.
