Dealing with difficult emotions
One of the largest challenges that a carer may face is the range of difficult emotions that can arise. Feelings such as frustration, fatigue, anger, guilt, isolation and resentment are all common at times. No two carers’ experiences are exactly the same and every day can be different.
It is important to remember that, if you are struggling with the negative feelings that can arise as a carer, you are not alone. Try not to feel guilty for experiencing any negative feelings that may be stirred up as you care for someone – these are normal reactions to what can be a very challenging role and many other carers will be experiencing the same feelings as you right now.
Our training team offer a range of face to face courses to support you with the emotional aspect of caring.
