Taking care of yourself while caring for another
Caregiving is seldom easy — it involves providing financial, physical, emotional and spiritual support to someone who is unable to live independently.
According to the Family Caregiver Alliance, approximately 44 million unpaid individuals (mostly family members) provide care each year to ill or disabled loved ones who are age 18 or older.
If you’re a caregiver, no one has to tell you about competing demands for your time. You may feel the emotional drain of caring for a loved one whose condition may not improve.
