“You were probably not asked to be a “CAREGIVER” and no doubt your responsibilities started out small. People often start off providing minimal support to their loved ones but as THEIR health declines- YOUR responsibilities increase. It is not a role you can just give up, but also one you probably did not choose! There is no job description and no preparation for this role which can make it seem that much more overwhelming, right?”
Words by Karen Lake in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.
