Family members often become primary caregivers for their aging loved ones. Sometimes a spouse is taking care of their partner, or an adult is taking care of their aging parent. It’s important to be aware of signs of burnout and how to get help.
The days are getting longer which means summer is here and thoughts turn to vacation! Many families, however, are caregivers for a loved one in their family who may be too frail or infirmed to travel. The idea of taking a much-needed vacation can leave them feeling even more stressed or guilty because of their responsibilities and obligations.
