What is caregiver burnout?
Caregivers are often family or friends of somebody who has a debilitating illness, or disability, that require care far beyond the scope of medical resources.
Caregiving can be a rewarding and fulfilling opportunity for the caregiver, and for the person being provided the care.
Caregiving, however, can become a burden. It can become difficult, causing caregivers to get burnt out.
Caregiver burnout is defined as a state of physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion that can lead to a change in attitude and attentiveness for the person being cared for.
