What is Compassion Fatigue?

What is Compassion Fatigue? | Becoming a family caregiver is a noble thing and a sign of how much you care for your senior loved one. However, as it’s often the case, family caregivers get to a point when they’re no longer capable of taking care of the senior. At least not without feeling bad, both emotionally and physically.

This condition is called compassion fatigue and is pretty common. It comes as a result of too much stress that comes with providing care to the senior loved one, as well as watching them struggle with all the problems that the old age brings.

Although the signs of compassion fatigue depend on the personality of the caregiver, there are some symptoms that are more common than others. Those include the following:

  • Physical exhaustion
  • Emotional exhaustion
  • Failure to concentrate
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Trouble leading a normal social life
  • The loss of empathy towards the senior

If you recognize some of these symptoms, it means that it’s time for you to take some break. The good news is that even just a couple of days could do wonders for you. The thing we recommend is to take a small vacation, visit friends and relatives, or simply watch movies and series on TV. But, get some rest from your work as a family caregiver.

The question you’re probably asking at this point is who’s gonna take care of your senior while you’re away. The answer is Comfort Keepers. This is an adult home care agency whose caregivers can fill your spot while you’re absent.

They have the skills and the experience necessary to give your aging loved one all they need. And because they work in shifts, there’s gonna be someone watching over your senior loved one at any given time.
