Why Meditation Can Help with Caregiver Stress

Why Meditation Can Help with Caregiver Stress

Being a caregiver is stressful: you have people depending on you to take care of their loved one, you work tirelessly to make sure that your client is happy, and you are doing so with a smile on your face. We know that at the end of the day, you may feel stressed and exhausted. After your shift ends and before you go to bed, it is important to wind down and focus on yourself for a few minutes. Meditation is a great way to unwind before the end of the day and put you in the right headspace to get a good night’s rest and wake up recharged and ready to take on another day!

Meditation can allow your cognitive functions to be improved and your stress to be vastly decreased. In addition, it can allow you to be one with your breath and keep yourself present in the moment. By focusing on your breath and the act of just ‘being’ you can give your mind a well-deserved break. Meditation can allow you to improve your overall mood, your mental health and your sleep patterns. By meditating for a few minutes after you get off work, you can put yourself in a mindset that will allow you to feel rejuvenated, recharged and rested.

The key to successful meditation is to allow yourself to be open to the possibility of letting go and just focusing on your breathing. It is helpful to have one central place that you feel comfortable meditating in. This could be on your bed, in the comfort of your living room or you may choose to create a space that is used exclusively for meditation. Find the environment that works for you and choose to commit to meditating at least every other day, if not for a few minutes each day.

Meditation does not have to be done at a retreat or in a professional studio. There are several apps and websites, such as Headspace, that allows you to meditate anywhere. By simply unplugging from the business and craziness of the real world, you make room in your heart and mind for relaxation and rejuvenation. We hope that you will take the time to try mediating the next time that you feel overwhelmed or stressed from work.

I like working for 24hr home care because they allow me to have a flexible schedule and I can take advantage of how far away from home I'd like to travel for work.

Pros: It’s nice working here. With this agency, you have a very flexible schedule. There are a lot of 4-5 hour shifts, although they do offer overnight shifts as well from 8 hours, maybe 12. You can qualify for employee benefits after 1 year of working here. They have “emergency rate” wages as well, these are last minute shifts that can raise from $1-5 an hour; if they hired you at $14hr and they give you an (e-rate) emergency rate then it’ll probably be from $15, $16, $17+ depending on the case. Traveling is required and they did have a virtual interview with me. They have employees working 24 hours if you decide to call them. They use the CC-Go app to clock in and clock out. They also give you a link to a corporate perks website that will give you discounts on phones, plane tickets, hotels ect. Cons: Communication with the office/managers can be difficult at times because when you call, anyone/random person can answer. My personal recommendation as a company request for employee(s): Sending each caregiver a “care package” in a ziplock bag with gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, ect. in case a facility or client doesn’t have the supplies needed. Having these “care packages” would help the company prevent any further sicknesses when dealing with urination and bowel movements if anything were to happen.
