Resources for the Burnt-Out Family Caregiver

life-belt-498453_640Caring for a family member or friend can leave you feeling empty and spent.

We hope our resources, webinars, virtual meetings and daily chats will help you find better days. Scroll down for information about these resources.

You may feel that you can’t talk freely about what’s really going on in your life and in your day. Know you can vent about your caregiving situation in our Forums. We do understand so go ahead and let it out. Feel free to use only your first name or an assumed name like “Wit’s End”.

A caregiving situation is a complicated one. It may be a struggle to figure out what to do. You can ask for our help by posting a question about your situation in our Forums. (Once redirected to our Forums, click on “Add Topic…”. We’ll use our collective wisdom to best help you.)

In addition, check with disease-specific organizations, like the Alzheimer’s Association, American Cancer Society and American Diabetes Association, for resources and support for you and your caree.

Feel free to add any resources in our Caregiving Resource Directory that helped you and may help others. You also can add reviews of apps, books, products, services and websites you’ve used in our Caregiving Reviews Section.

Would you like to share your story about how stress affects you? Complete our form and we’ll feature your story about caregiving stress on CareGiving.com.

We hope you also find the additional resources on CareGiving.com helpful:

The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey helps you manage today while preparing for tomorrow.

Certified Caregiving Consultants™ can guide you to resources and solutions which can help you. Schedule a free consultation with any of consultants.

Check out our caregiving blogs, written by others just like you. Our bloggers write about life during caregiving and after it ends.

Happiness Project encourages us to make small daily changes which we hope will lead to greater happiness.

Healing from Compassion Fatigue webinars help you heal when you grow weary of bad luck, coping, grieving, making decisions and giving support.

Join our daily, weekly and monthly caregiving chats to connect and share with others who understand. (Create your free CareGiving.com account to join our chats.) Our chats are open to those currently caring for a family member or friend and to those adjusting to life after caregiving ends.

Making a Break meets on the fourth Sunday at 4 p.m. ET (3 p.m. CT, 1 p.m. PT) during which we help you make a break for yourself.

Your Caregiving Must Knows includes tips and resources. We update the list of must knows regularly.

We understand that you are doing your best. It’s awful when you doubt that you are doing enough. We hope our resources remind you that you are doing more than enough.
