Caring for the Caregiver
Every day families are making tremendous sacrifices to provide the care and support
needed by their older relatives. Almost always the provision of this care is
willingly provided and motivated by love, respect and concern. However, this
care is also provided at a significant cost to the caregiver, not only in financial
terms but also in increased emotional stress and health risks.
Families need support to both reduce these risks and to sustain them in their
ongoing caregiving roles. This site provides information on taking care of yourself,
support groups and where to find additional help.
