BrightStar Care respite services offers relief for overworked family caregivers.
Caregiver burnout is real. Something that contributes to the stress is that many caregivers have difficulty saying 'no'.
Whether it’s someone asking for help or "caregiving responsibilities, a friend expecting their attendance at an event, or a boss asking them to work late, caregivers are often sympathetic to the needs of others and can neglect their own."
However, "when a caregiver constantly puts others above themselves, they risk the real repercussions of stretching themselves too thin, and could fall ill or face other physical or mental health issues themselves. "
Even though, saying "no" can be challenging when a friend, family member, or acquaintance asks for help, caregivers should ask themselves about how it will impact their own well-beling. Whether the request is for your time or if it’s something that can wait, be postponed, or declined, ask yourself if it is vital.
