People who care for loved ones, either paid or unpaid, can experience caregiver stress. There could be added stress if the individual needing care is seriously ill or has a chronic condition. Caregivers benefit from counseling interventions that help them cope with their stress or difficult emotions.
Available Treatment Options
Therapists may work with family caregivers to develop healthy ways to cope and release their stress. Caregivers may feel anxious, isolated, lonely, or depressed, among other things. Depending on their specific issue, counselors will work with the caregiver to provide strategies that allow them to do their job while maintaining a particular level of care for themselves and their mental health.
