Tell Us: What’s Today’s Caregiving Stress (Day 2)?

Denise
struggling-with-stress_364x200_98059549As you may know, I’ve been collecting data about your caregiving stress, the overlooked epidemic in our communities. During a recent webinar, The Family Caregiver’s Stress, I shared the current results of our ongoing survey and share thoughts about what’s needed to minimize the stress.

We know that caregiving stress can be ongoing. I also believe that caregiver stress is constantly changing, that what stresses you on Monday is replaced by a different stressful situation on Tuesday. To show the constant and changing face of caregiving stress, I’d love for you to tell us about each day’s caregiving stress over a period of five days. Your stories about your day’s caregiving stress will make our data about your caregiving stress that much more compelling.

In our comments section, below, tell us about the stress you’re feeling today.

Today 's stress was having to talk to one of my husband's care givers (second time) about his failure to do the light housekeeping chores.\r\n Denise has written about this but it's still difficult. Will I have to fire him. Will I be able to find a replacement as who is also strong enough get my husband up?

My stress today was that I didn't get to talk to my Dad about signing up for MediCal and knowing that he might not live to use it but Hospice suggested I help him apply...I was busy arranging for another Dr. to take Elly as his patient so we can have less stress about getting her to a dr for money-making visits every 3 months! Oh, and it was Elly's birthday today so I told her that her birthday present from me was a NEW DOCTOR!!!

My caregiving stress today was trying to get information on my mother's serious heart condition as a result of a sepsis emergency: ambushing the cardiologist on the corridor and chasing around looking for the correct nurse for updates. Frustrating!
