Many of us believe that the bitter feeling that we receive from taking care of elder citizens like anger and hindrance are bad and the love and satisfaction that we get from taking care of them is good. But, in fact there are no such things as good and bad emotions while taking care of the elders. They are just the emotions and if you can deal with it then you surely can control it with your willpower.
When caregivers get exhausted and stressed because of the workload then it takes them to the situation of depression and feeling of attempting suicide. While some of the caregivers can adjust their emotional state and some becomes unable to do it, but it does not mean that it is impossible to overcome from those state of mind.
We know that, caregivers who work for age care service or senior citizens have to go through wide range of emotions throughout their care giving period. Some of the emotions become positive and overwhelming such as love, tenderness, gratitude, pleasure and triumph where some of it can turn into negative emotions, such as caregivers who work for the Alzheimer’s and dementia patients, go through excessive anger, frustration because they need to take care of them for a whole week which gives indirect pressure to them.
When you have to work continuously work for the elders and if you have to take of the Alzheimer and dementia patients then you can get stressful and have a bad feeling about your work. 24/7 taking care of them and making them safe by preventing all the dangers that can harm them is really a difficult job to do and you must always be careful about their safety. Being conscious all the time is very hard and maintaining your work and personal life is difficult as well.
There are the things that you can do to be free from all those emotional damages that you have been suffering and get a time for yourself to relax and think about the potential changes that can help you bring the power to celebrate your life. Give some time to think about your well-being, are you doing the right thing for your family and for you. If not what changes you need to bring to make yourself stable determines your emotional state. You should not always think about your work, take care of elders with a free mind and be emotionally attached to the elders and build your relationships in a good way.
Balancing your work and being mentally stable is vitally important. So how you can achieve this? You just simply need to think about yourself and give yourself the first priority; first, you need to take care of yourself so that you would be able to think about others. As we all go through some period in our life where we tend to feel that everything is over and there is nothing left for us to improve our conditions. Same can happen to the caregivers who are less emotionally stable and feel burden by their work and seeing the life of old people, they might also feel that life is uncertain and relating themselves to the elders who are somehow being neglected by society gives them bad feelings about life. But giving some time to think about your beautiful life and thinking about the achievements you can bring from your life will give you motivation and freedom from all those negative feelings.
