Becoming the primary caregiver for a spouse, family member, friend, or loved one can be a tremendously rewarding and equally challenging experience.
How do you know if you’re the right person to be a caregiver? What important conversations should you have beforehand to make sure that you’re starting off on the right foot? What aspects of care should you manage personally and how do you assemble the best support team to handle the rest? How do you deal with doctors, hospitals, and other medical issues?
Oh, and in the midst of those questions and many, many more, who takes care of you? As you invest your time, energy and strength into caregiving, how do you avoid burnout and maintain your own physical and emotional wellbeing?
