Dealing with Anger as a Caregiver

November 9, 2017

At times being a caregiver can be challenging. Anger is a strong emotion that can build over time and let loose unexpectedly. Being a caregiver means having to help others who can no longer do some every day things for themselves and their frustration in that may lead to frustration and anger in their caregivers. This article offers several tips on dealing with this anger so that it does not rear its ugly head. Perhaps some meditation, treating yourself or simply just taking a break may be all that is needed.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many caregivers feel angry that their parents had fun or put themselves in dangerous situations, leaving their ill health to adult children.
  • It helps to change your perspective and take a break, remember you’re a good person for doing this, and it helps to get away for a little bit.
  • Treat yourself, meditate and let it go, and if needed, seek help from a personal consultant.

“Some caregivers are angry and resentful because they believe their parents have caused the situation they are in at the moment.”
