Is Caregiving a Burden?
The research released Thursday by Pew Research Center has still been getting a lot of press coverage. It’s always interesting to read how the press describes what you do. Once in awhile, the word “burden” will be used; “caregiving burden” a reporter will write.
I’m curious how you feel about the word burden as it relates to caregiving. Do you feel burdened? Do you like to be able to use the word “burden” to describe how you feel but prefer that others don’t? Do certain tasks and responsibilities feel like a burden? Does the whole experience feel like it’s a burden? If you don’t feel burdened, why do you think that is?
