Neary one in five Americans serves as an unpaid caregiver, per the AARP, with about 40% of caregivers considering their roles to be highly stressful and 17% describing their own health as fair or poor.

Whether it’s caring for an aging parent, supporting a spouse with a chronic illness or raising children with special needs or as a single parent, caregiver burnout is real. It’s a silent struggle, an invisible weight that often goes unnoticed. 

Caring for others can lead to neglect of your own health needs, which can lead to a decline in your own physical and mental well-being. This might include missing medical appointments, not taking prescribed medications or ignoring symptoms of an illness. Recognizing these signs early, taking proactive steps and engaging in self-care to maintain one’s mental health can help people manage caregiver burnout effectively.
