High stress is nobody’s friend, least of all home caregivers, who usually have more than a full load to handle. When people feel stressed, they’re less effective at their tasks, including taking care of any elderly patients in their lives. And while a little bit of stress can be motivational, high levels slow people down. Add in the fact that too much stress is a health risk, and it’s clear that home caregivers who are over-stressed need to take steps to rein things in.
That’s easier said than done, of course, but the following tips may prove useful in helping to lower stress levels to something more manageable.
