Caregiver Assessment - Taking care of you, the Caregiver.
First, go through the following questions by yourself, or better yet, with an accountability partner or group. Think about what applies to your situation.
What is your caregiving situation?
I live with my loved one
I live within driving distance of the person I care for
I am a long-distance caregiver
I am a paid caregiver for an unrelated person
Are there other caregivers sharing the role with you? (Unpaid caregivers, not people in medical or other paid roles.)
No one, I am a sole caregiver
I have others that support the person needing care
There are other family members, but they help little or none
How do you express the need for self-care with the person you take care of?
I know my limits and share them with my loved one
I don't bother to explain because they will not understand
I express my limits, but then go ahead and ignore them
I don’t think about my limitations, I just keep going
Have you experienced any of the following symptoms of stress while being a caregiver – even one time? (Check as many as apply.)
Emotional stress – crying, outbursts, etc.
Mental confusion, fog
Forgetting your own or family appointments
Neglecting your own needs (for example not scheduling dental appointments)
Unable to fulfill family responsibilities
Lack of sleep
