FAQ

Caregiver Burnout and Mesothelioma

When a loved one is suffering from a debilitating illness like mesothelioma, relatives will reach out to provide home cares and other help after their surgeries. For some who take on this caregiver role, burnout can be an issue caused by the lack of control, and odd situations that mesothelioma causes. This article takes a brief look at caregiver burnout, and provides a few ways to handle it.

Caregiver burnout is a mix of symptoms that affect people providing long-term care, manifesting in exhaustion, attitude changes, and symptoms of depression or stress. When someone has caregiver burnout, their exhaustion comes in the form of physical, mental and emotional exhaustion. This exhaustion is accompanied by a change in attitude, where a caregiver switches from being helpful and positive to feeling hopeless about their loved-one’s care. Symptoms look like stress or depression, including: withdrawal, irritability, hopelessness, fatigue and sadness.

Family members of people with mesothelioma suffer caregiver burnout for a number of basic reasons; high demands, role confusion, and a lack of control. Mesothelioma is a terrible illness, and between it and it’s treatments, can be debilitating, putting a loved one in a position where their at-home care is physically, emotionally and mentally demanding. When someone becomes a caregiver to their loved-one, they take on this role in addition to their previous relationship. It can be jarring to give personal cares to someone that is a lover or close friend. The care given at home can soothe a patient with mesothelioma, but given the aggressive nature of the disease, many caregivers have little control over the eventual demise of their loved-one. This loss of control, along with the role reversal and high demands call for coping skills to prevent caregiver burnout.

Coping with caregiver burnout and preventing it comes down to knowing and accepting limits, taking breaks and practicing self-care, and reaching out to support groups. Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer, and accepting the prognosis, as well as recognizing that an individual caregiver cannot cure it on their own can help quite a bit. Caregivers who take care of themselves; get enough sleep, eat well, and take breaks will do a lot to prevent their own burnout. Lastly, while caring for a loved-one with mesothelioma is a unique challenge, there are support groups out there for family members of people with cancer, and hearing how others got through their challenges can mean all the difference.

    The soothing touch of a family member or spouse, and the comforts of home can make a huge difference for someone suffering from mesothelioma. This article looked at how individuals providing home care can suffer caregiver burnout, and provided some ways to avoid, or minimize the risks of it.
