â€œWhy doesn’t anyone ask how I am doing?â€ It is easy to feel invisible, as if no one can see you. Everyone’s attention is on the person with the illness, and they don’t seem to understand what the caregiver is going through. Many caregivers say that nobody even asks how they’re doing. Mental health experts say it’s not wise to let feelings of neglect build up. Caregivers need to speak up and tell other people what they need and how they feel.
Home care counselors at Partners in Healthcare are available to talk with you about your in-home care needs including how to reduce caregiver stress while providing better, affordable care. We are an in-home care agency providing Home Care in Orlando.
