To Avoid Burnout, share care-giving responsibility with other family members. Know that some nursing home & Adult homes offer Respite care (short term care ) for those whom need a break for a vacation or simply getting rest. Normally this is about a week long.

Everyone needs a break. I was a remote caregiver for my mom and would travel monthly to visit my sister, who could take a break a week at a time.
Doing the same thing for weeks, months or years can be draining. I'd love to exchange ideas on avoiding burnout.
Caring for a stage 4 tonsil cancer patient while raising four children certainly pushed me to my limit. Avoiding burnout was very important in keeping my family together. I'm happy to talk to anyone who might be looking for advice, want some perspective, or just need to vent.
I have years of experience I can share if it will help.
