Guardian Carers Feature on BBC News London

Coping with one’s feelings when being a carer

Being a carer is probably one of the most rewarding jobs out there. A carer invests their time and energy into helping others and offering them a better life. There aren’t many people out there who are able to do this job. The most important things you need to have as a carer are kindness and a passion for helping others.

Caring for others may be an extremely rewarding job, but it also comes with its downsides sometimes. Whether you are caring for a loved one or you are hired to offer care, you will be providing a range of support for that person, such as emotional support, help with coping with a mental problem, personal care, providing medical care or looking after their finances, among many others. After doing this job for a while, you may begin to feel overwhelmed. And that is completely normal. The emotional side of caregiving is the biggest part of the job.
