When You Feel Guilty Asking For Help

It’s not at all uncommon for family caregivers to feel guilty asking for help. In fact, at Visiting Angels® Greater St. Charles, our senior care team in the Cottleville area, deals with this issue all the time. We find it helpful for family caregivers to take the time to examine the faulty reasoning behind these undeserved feelings of guilt.

Why You Shouldn't Feel Guilty About Asking For Help

Most family caregivers have a strong sense of duty and commitment to their loved one. This is absolutely commendable and a sign of good character. The problem arises when the idea of self-sacrifice is taken to the extreme and the caregiver becomes sleep-deprived, run down, irritable, unable to concentrate, and constantly torn between competing obligations and priorities.

A good caregiver is a healthy caregiver. As our mental, emotional, and spiritual reserves are diminished, the level of care we provide to our loved one suffers, as does every other area of our lives. It’s totally unrealistic to think that one person can handle all that goes into caring for an aging elder, especially as their needs naturally increase.

Reaching out for help to other family members or professional senior care providers like Visiting Angels Greater St. Charles actually honors your commitment. It doesn’t take away from it.
