Self-Care for Caregivers
Care giving can be physically and emotionally exhausting. Whether you are a health care professional or taking care of a loved one, it is important to remember to recharge your batteries. For family members, care giving can lead to additional pressures, such as financial strain, family conflict, and social withdrawal. Over time, caregiver stress can lead to burnout, a condition marked by irritability, fatigue, problems with sleep, weight gain, feelings of helplessness or hopelessness, and social isolation
Caregiver burnout is an example of how repeated exposure to stress harms mental and physical health
We are honored to be invited to talk about Self-Care for for Health Care Professionals at the upcoming Annual Congress of Medicine in Bangkok.
