The Caregivers

"Caregiving only works, in my experience, when it's circular -- and I want to give Nancy opportunities to care for me, sometimes I do that consciously but not always. Sometimes I just genuinely need her to just touch my hand, to say it's all right." -- George Mairs

Caregivers can't -- and shouldn't -- go it alone. Burn-out is a real danger and it is essential to get help. David Egner offers some suggestions in Caring for the Caregiver.

Forum

Family caregivers often feel isolated and alone. Sharing their concerns, frustrations and rewards with others can be very beneficial.
