Caregivers are frequently so busy caring for others they risk neglecting their own physical, emotional, and spiritual health. The demands of caregiving can become overwhelming and lead to burnout. The symptoms of burnout are similar to the symptoms of depression: emotional and physical exhaustion, feeling irritable and helpless, changes in appetite, loss of interest in things once enjoyed. The best defenses: having a clear sense of one's role, realistic expectations, and a strong support network -- all of which can be hard to regularly attain.
But imagine if caregivers could connect and chat, day or night, with other caregivers That's The Caregiver Space, a virtual support network for family and professional caregivers, helping them manage and cope with ongoing challenges. The non-profit organization provides a sacred space where discussions flow openly, facilitated by experts who also reply to private messages. Personal blogs and expert health articles are free and accessible. Education is provided on a plethora of topics to include mental health, physical fitness, bereavement, relaxation and sleep. It all began through a visionary caregiver, Adrienne Gruberg.
Adrienne became a constant caregiver to both her husband, diagnosed with lung cancer in 2005, and his mother, who at the age of ninety in 2007, was diagnosed with lymphoma and went to live with her son and daughter-in-law in New York City. As a result of the crisis, she is the proud Founder and President of The Caregiver Space.
Adrienne Gruberg is also Owner and President of Cable Access Network and a television studio in Manhattan, where she will be producing the "spin-off" video channel of the site. Join us to hear how one woman's quest to do good is enriching caregivers lives around the world.

As a parent of a daughter with Schizoaffective Disorder, a son with speech/language delays, a partner with MS, and a father in the later stages of Alzheimer's not to mention I am dealing with CIDP, I can say that I have experienced caregiver burnout.
According to WebMd, Caregiver burnout is a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion that may be accompanied by a change in attitude -- from positive and caring to negative and unconcerned. Burnout can occur when caregivers don't get the help they need, or if they try to do more than they are able -- either physically or financially. Caregivers who are "burned out" may experience fatigue, stress, anxiety, and depression. Many caregivers also feel guilty if they spend time on themselves rather than on their ill or elderly loved ones.
