Family Caregiving

Caregiver burnout is real. Furthermore, it can take a heavy toll on a caregiver’s mind, body, and well-being. Often, people who are caring for loved-ones experience depression, anxiety, compromised health, and high levels of stress as they manage the demands of many roles.

  • Are you caring for a loved one impacted by a chronic or progressive illness?
  • Do you find yourself struggling to care for yourself as you balance the demands of work, parenting and caring for your spouse, parent or another family member or friend?
  • Are you looking for tools and strategies to help you communicate and care for a loved one impacted by dementia or cognitive loss?

  • Are you looking for support and professional guidance as you plan for the “next steps” with an ill or aging family member?
  • Has your relationship with your loved one changed as you move into the role of caregiver, and are you seeking strategies to communicate with each other?

Caring for and providing support to a family member or friend who is aging or has an illness is hard. Furthermore, it can bring up many feelings. Sometimes, we might not feel comfortable sharing these feelings with our family or friends. Usually, because we do not want to upset or “burden” them. But the feelings are still there. And sometimes, they’re intense.
