Caregiving, even for someone you love deeply, can bring mixed emotions. On one hand, there is a bond to the person who needs your care and the satisfaction of being able to help. On the other hand, there are caregivers who find caring for an older adult challenging leaving the caregiver feeling exhausted and frustrated. Therefore, caregivers, whether spouse, children, family members, friends or paid assistants, need to take care of themselves too.
