Recognizing and Preventing Caregiver Burnout: Tips for Families and Friends
This DVD presents an insightful Alzheimer’s support group led by Dr. Peter Rabins addressing “caregiver burnout” and the feelings of hopelessness and isolation often experienced by caregivers. This group lets the caregiver know they are not alone.
In a discussion led by Dr. Peter Rabins, caregivers relate their own experiences and identify their personal signs of burnout. ‘When do you know it is more than just a bad day?’ ‘Who can you turn to for help?’ ‘What things can you do if you feel like you are having a caregiver meltdown and how can you prevent it?’ ‘Can other people understand your frustrations?’
By sharing their experiences, the caregivers in this video realize they have all had moments of crying and despair. With Dr. Rabin’s help, they are able to step back, take a deep breath and realize they are doing a great job. Topics include: caregiver personality changes, signals of caregiver depression, increasing frustration, feelings of hopelessness, social isolation and recognizing the value of your efforts as a caregiver.
Topics: Depression, personality changes, stress relief, support
Audience: Dementia/Alzheimer’s support groups, family caregivers, home care staff, social workers
