Playing the role of a primary caregiver to your senior or sick loved ones is not a walk in the park. There are responsibilities you need to fulfill to keep your dear ones safe, happy, and healthy. Without extensive training in health care service, you may be among the many who are left to learn by themselves.
- You do not have time for yourself.
You spend most of your time taking care of your dear ones, that you forget to take care of yourself. From your hygiene to your errands, you are neglecting your duties to yourself.
- You become sick more often.
Due to neglecting your own needs, you may start to get sick more often. When you are ill, you are unable to care for your loved ones properly.
- You become indifferent to your loved ones’ needs.
Every time you are stressed, tired, or ill, you tend to be oblivious to what your dear ones are feeling. As a result, you do not have the drive to address their needs.
