Avoiding Caregiver Burnout

Caring for someone with osteoporosis isn’t always easy. Although it can strengthen your bond with your loved one and be very rewarding, it can also be exhausting, both physically and emotionally.

In addition to the tips listed below for avoiding burnout, remember that your feelings and mental health are just as important as the person you are caring for.

Consider talking to someone about your emotional struggles as an MS caregiver, whether that person is a therapist, a fellow caregiver or someone from a support organization. Suppressing feelings of frustration, inadequacy, anger or guilt will take a toll on your health and your ability to provide good care.

And above all, remember that your best is all you can do. Your loved one appreciates the care you provide, probably more than you know.

Read on to learn more about caregiving and avoiding burnout.
