We have 65 million caregivers in the United States, which is approximately 29% of the population and this number continues to grow. When someone becomes a caregiver it can quickly become overwhelming as their life downward spirals. Many caregivers are exhausted, worn down and pushed to the brink. You are either a caregiver, have been one, know of one or will be one. It will cross your path directly or indirectly at some point in your life. When it does, know that self care is as important as being a caregiver. We are finally realizing that care, support and education needs to be on both sides for caregiving to work. Realize that you are not alone, and when the time comes hiring a professional caregiver may be your answer.
