What Can Caregiver Burnout Look Like For You?
Answer the following questions:
1. Are your relationships suffering?
2. Do you feel emotionally numb or apathetic?

4. Do you feel guilty for not providing better care? (Even though that might be the furthest thing from the truth.)
If your own daily needs and life are ignored, then your health and well-being will suffer along with the quality of care you provide.
