When You Feel Guilty Asking For Help

If you feel like you could really use some help with senior care for your loved one in the Albert Lea area but are hesitating due to feelings of guilt, you are not alone. Caregiver guilt is a common phenomenon that always has its origins in underlying faulty beliefs that start out as noble, well-intentioned thoughts.

Two Major Faulty Beliefs That Cause Caregiver Guilt

I should be able to handle this all by myself. Handling the ever-growing needs of your loved one is not something you should even be attempting beyond a certain point. What is that point? When you are exhausted, unable to concentrate, your other responsibilities are suffering, and you find yourself depressed, irritable, or even starting to drink more alcohol.

They don’t want outside help. It’s perfectly normal for our loved ones to become more fearful and suspicious as they age. They sense that they are more vulnerable, and they are. Our suggestion is to involve them in the process, explain how extensive the vetting procedure is for an agency like ours, and most importantly, point out that you need this for your own continued well-being.
