Signs of Caregiver Stress

Signs that you may be experiencing caregiver stress, and could benefit from the Alzheimer’s care services we offer at Visiting Angels Beaver Dam include:

  • Exhaustion. The time you spend providing Alzheimer's care to your loved one in the Beaver Dam area makes it almost impossible to complete necessary daily tasks.
  • Lack of Concentration. The stress of caring for a loved one causes you to forget about your own appointments, responsibilities, and commitments.
  • Sleeplessness. You are kept awake at night by a never-ending list of concerns for your loved one's well-being.
  • Social Withdrawal. After dedicating yourself to providing Alzheimer's care to your loved one in the Beaver Dam area, you can no longer find the will or time to spend with other family and friends.
  • Irritability. Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's requires patience and compassion. If you find yourself losing patience with your loved one, it may be time to seek outside help.
  • An Increase in Health Problems. If you have been experiencing health problems of your own while providing Alzheimer's care to your loved one, you could benefit from respite and rest from Visiting Angels Beaver Dam to improve your health and well-being.
