The Importance of Caregiving

As family members become older, they often rely more and more on people who know them and love them to take care of them. This can be exhausting for the person helping out. Typically this person is their child, a young or middle-aged adult in the prime of their life, taking care of their own children and holding down a career. The added task of trying to balance helping an elderly parent, relative or friend is daunting and can easily overwhelm a person.
