Compassion fatigue is defined as the growing indifference to appeals on behalf of suffering people, experienced as a result of the frequency or number of such appeals. Have you ever been in a situation where you do something good for a person or a group of people and then after a long period of time, you get tired of doing it?
For women, they are usually on the receiving end of a tedious amount of responsibilities. Imagine a woman raising a child and caring for an aging parent, stuck in between her day job as well. Most people are in this state, hence the term Sandwich generation. About 13 out of 100 women are playing the role of the “ball” in a ping pong game; taking care of the elderly and their young children.
While it initially creates extra problems which weighs such a person down when the bills come in, wages unpaid, disseverment or kids going to school, etc. It is much easier in where there are more extended family relations to share the workload with and who would take on the responsibility of taking care of them. And with additional services on offer from our organizations, it gets even much better.
More women are joining the workforce and having the extra responsibility of yet another person or persons to care for can be overwhelming. Our services are designed to help protect you from this type of burnout which is becoming increasingly common in the modern society.
