Do you have compassion fatigue?
Taking care of someone else, including your elderly parents, can be exhausting and overwhelming, both emotionally and physically.
It can lead to what’s called compassion fatigue.
Kim & Mike Barnes of Parenting Aging Parents talk to Amy Wright of Amy Wright & Co. She’s an aging and end of life educator and advocate.
They discuss: what is compassion fatigue, how common is it, what does it mean, how do you know if you have it and what can you do about it.
