Caregiver related stress is reaching epidemic proportions in North America. Absenteeism and loss of productivity will cost businesses an estimated $29 billion this year. Caregivers support group helps caregivers who often struggle to balance multiple obligations in their lives.
You, as a Caregiver, need help too!
As a family caregiver, you will be unable to help or assist a loved one if you fail to take care of yourself. Clinical research suggests that this is especially true for spousal caregivers. Our Support group provides a place to talk with other people with the disease, where you can share information and support.
It is an enormous responsibility to care of a loved one suffering from any illness. You, as a caregiver, have to realize that there will be times when you will feel angry, or depressed because of the tremendous amount of pressure placed on you with such a responsibility.
