How To Take Great Care of Elders
Showing care and concern for the elderly fraternity, be it your own family or any stranger, can be extremely pleasing and rewarding. There is a lot of satisfaction involved in this. But this, for
some, could also be very upsetting and frustrating. You will hardly know this if you have never been involved in this sort of an issue earlier in your life.
It can make you very pessimistic and put you on the downfall track of burnout. It will take a lot from you to recoup yourself and get your acts together. It is no temporary action as you need
to be at it full time, even if you are elsewhere. Thus it becomes very important to know to recognize the frustration and stress involved and how to cope with it.
Caregivers also experience a similar case off trauma and stress over a period of time just like a person taking care of an elderly relative. The upsetting part would be the elderly person, after sometime, turn at you and not recognize you for all the work you had done. It is very disturbing
for sure even though this could be an extreme example taken into consideration.
There are various other sources of stress when it comes to taking care of elders. Non-compliance with requests, threatening, violence or even intolerable behavior, confusion and illness are certain other things which cause the problem.
You might have to put in extra effort sometimes on full time basis and this could be tiring. Even if you are not working on full time basis with a particular elder it is extremely hard. Your mind will
tend to stagnate on this issue and its tough switching your mind. All your focus might be directed to this and thereby losing control over things.
Recognizing the symptoms before it strikes you is very important. During stress, you will figure out that it is difficult to eat and sleep properly. Lack of sleep and a depressing mood can let you
down. You will burst into tears for no good reason and this could be a problem sometimes.
The feeling of emptiness has an adverse effect as you will know that you have nothing left and
you donít have a choice but to continue. Lethargy will result and frustration starts to creep on you.
You might be even directing your irritation to the person you taking care of at that time. You will have very less time to devote for your family and friends as all your time will be taken up here.
