Caregivers Trust Your Instincts!

By Roz Jones

Being a caregiver is one of the most rewarding, but also challenging, jobs out there. You are constantly juggling many different tasks and responsibilities, and it can be easy to get overwhelmed.  It is important to remember that you are the expert on your patients and their care and that you should always trust your instincts!

As a caregiver, you have a lot of responsibility on your shoulders. Not only do you have to provide physical care for your patients, but you also have to provide emotional support. It can be easy to get bogged down in the day-to-day grind and forget why you became a caregiver in the first place. Remembering why you became a caregiver can help you refocus and approach your job with fresh eyes. 

It is also important to build a support network of family and friends who can offer emotional support when needed. Being a caregiver can be emotionally draining, and it is important to have people in your life who understand what you are going through. These people can offer words of wisdom or just a listening ear when needed. 

Finally, always trust your instincts! You are the expert on your patients and their care. If something doesn’t feel right, or if you have a gut feeling about something, always listen to it. You know your patients better than anyone else, and chances are if something feels off then it probably is. 

Being a caregiver is a challenging but rewarding job. Always remember why you became a caregiver in the first place, build a supportive network of family and friends, and always trust your instincts!
