Tell Us: What’s Today’s Caregiving Stress (Day 3)?

0
breakwater-379252_640As 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.

Another day off and a chance to attend to several caregiving issues: calls to my mom's lawyer and a meeting with her bank to discuss how to pay for her now around-the-clock care; make appt. with the roofer to fix a leak; finding out how to transfer an account from my deceased dad to my mom since she can't go to the bank; getting info on how to move an annuity account to my aunt's estate; canceling my mom's Life Alert account; arranging for a dental home visit to investigate my mom's mouth pain. Arranging for an organizing pro to help speed up clearing out my aunt's hoarder house so it can be put up for sale; scheduling one of four mandatory annual guardian visits to the group home of my 66-yr-old cousin who has schizophrenia.
