Being a caregiver is one of the most altruistic things a person can take on, but taking care of someone else's health and well-being can be challenging and stressful to the caregiver, especially if the needs of a loved one are long-term and physically demanding to the caregiver.
Caregivers who are supported are better able to assist their loved ones, but caregivers tend to focus on their loved one’s health and welfare and neglect their own well-being. Fortunately, there are many ways caregivers can get support and time to care for themselves, even as they provide attention to their loved ones wants and/or needs.
