Being a caregiver is a rewarding yet demanding role. With COVID-19 causing significant restrictions in daily activities and social interactions, many have lost the essential caregiving support services they desperately need. Sheltering in place leaves caregivers with fewer options to get outside or take breaks from the person they are caring for. Naturally, this can lead to an increase in caregiver stress. Since your stress levels may be higher, it is important to make sure you are checking for standard signs of burnout.
