Caring for someone with Dementia: -Preventing Caregiver Burnout

Caring for someone

Your loved one gets a diagnosis of Alzheimer's or any type of dementia what does that mean to you? Family members and loved ones deal with a lot of stress when a person is diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's. A diagnosis like this can be incredibly scary for everyone around, and it can often lead to depression in caregivers. People who care for others with dementia, such as Alzheimer's disease, are at significant risk for stress as they try to handle the changing needs abilities of the person with dementia

Caregivers are extremely susceptible to stress as they spend the bulk of their time and energy on their loved ones. Caregiver stress can be overwhelming to take care of a loved one with Alzheimer's or other dementia, but too much stress can be harmful to both of you. The effects on caregivers are diverse and complex, and there are many other factors that may exacerbate or ameliorate how caregivers react and feel because of their role. Numerous studies report that caring for a person with dementia is more stressful than caring for a person with a physical disability

While some irritation may be part of everyday life as a caregiver, feeling extreme frustration can be overwhelming in taking care of a loved one with dementia and can have serious consequences for you and/or the person you care for. Frustration and stress may negatively impact your physical & mental health. It may result in you being physically or verbally aggressive towards your loved one or cared for and may also cause social isolation for you.

 

Aims: Our interactive training session aims to answer the following questions.

  • What is caregiver burnout?
  • A lot is said about it, especially when caring for someone with Alzheimer's or any type of dementia. What can caregivers do to avoid being overloaded?
  • What coping strategies would you find helpful while you watch your loved one deal with the effects of dementia?
  • Are you aware of the warning signs of burned out caregivers so that you know what to look out for?
