Reply To: How can you help your caregiver from burning out?

I had no idea you had to go through that.

But isn’t that a reflection of how little support / training caregivers receive today? In my understanding, the expectation for many caregivers is set at assisting the survivor to go to the bathroom, or cook some food. The caregivers had little idea what a survivor is going through. Honestly, many caregivers might have thought, helping a stroke survivor would be no different than helping an elderly who just fractured her bone. They had no idea the psychological trauma a survivor would have to deal with.

Panic and frustration certain do not help accelerate the learning curve.
