Home Instead Senior Care interviewed over a thousand family caregivers across North America to better understand how caregivers are coping.
We learned that individuals caring for a senior parent or other older family member experience a wide range of emotions on their family care giving journey. Many of us believe that feelings such as love and tenderness are good and then anger, frustration or resentment are bad or somehow wrong.
This can complicate things, because we may feel guilty about the emotions we think we shouldn't feel. But really are no good or bad emotions, there are just emotions. Sadly, many family caregivers struggle with difficult emotions and end up repressing those feelings.
