Caregiver Stress

Caregiver Stress: Identifying and Reducing Strain and Stress is an mmLearn.org presentation for the James L. West Center for Dementia Care.

Caregiver stress is defined as suffering of the mind or body, as severe physical or mental strain. It is subjective and unique to each individual, and it can result in loss of energy, exhaustion, feeling out of control, feeling tense or nervous, lacking interest in things you used to like to do, or becoming isolated. This video helps answer the question, “What do I do to relieve caregiver stress?”
