Caring for a frail and senior family member can be challenging and most caregivers tend to put the wellbeing of their loved ones before their own. However, that may be doing both caregivers and their loved ones more harm in the long run.
Guilt is one of the most common psychological impacts of caregiving. Many caregivers experience caregiver guilt where they feel that they are not doing enough for their loved ones.
Says Mr Kelvin Lee, Manager of TOUCH Caregivers Support, “Guilt stops caregivers from receiving help and rest as they feel it is selfish to do so. They may become disconnected with the world.”
The New Paper recently ran a story on caregiver guilt. You may read it here.
