The task of caregiving is a personally enriching experience, however, overseeing the care of friend or family member can be sometimes feel daunting, especially if you have a career on top of it. Juggling your job and caregiving can significantly impact your job performance as well as your mental and physical health. It can be an emotional and overwhelming task, especially if the level of care needed by your loved one increases.
Physically, Mentally, and Emotionally Challenging
Working individuals often try to focus their time and energy on their career and while affording their loved ones with the care they need. The next round of medication, the next project’s deadline, the next doctor’s appointment – all these thoughts weigh on the hearts and minds of people trying to juggle caring for their loved ones and the demands of their career. The level of constant output demanded in such situations can be extreme, and a slight imbalance will inevitably create physical, mental, and emotional challenges.
