Tell Us: What’s Today’s Caregiving Stress (Day 5)?


Tell Us: What’s Today’s Caregiving Stress (Day 5)?

lonely-821489_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.

my Caregiving stress yesterday and still today is worrying about leaving my mom alone for several hours.


My caregiving stress has centred all week around the frustration of not being able to get clear information about my mother's serious health condition from hospital staff. They all seem overworked and overtired with little time for relatives. If I do nab someone, my caregiving stress for the day depends on the individual I meet: one person may be helpful, another not. It is sad that the health service, through cutbacks, has been reduced to this.
