Caregiver Support Services

As the world’s population ages, the demand for caregiving services has surged. Alongside aging, many young individuals and children with disabilities also require caregiving support. Behr Psychology offers comprehensive caregiver support services to address caregiver stress and burnout.

The challenges of caregiving

While caring for a loved one is rewarding, caregiving can also be physically, emotionally, and mentally draining. Caregiver stress is daily and can manifest through persistent fatigue, overwhelming worry, and irritability. Other signs you may be experiencing caregiver stress include sleep disturbances, changes in appetite, and loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities.

Understanding caregiver burnout

Caregiver burnout is a state of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion caused by prolonged caregiving. It often leads mood changes, chronic fatigue, and a weakened immune system. Recognizing and addressing these signs is crucial for the caregiver’s well-being.
