When you're devoting yourself to the unpaid care of an elderly, chronically ill, or disabled family member, you can start to feel isolated, exhausted, and overwhelmed. But help is available. You're not alone.
There are numerous resources and community services available for caregivers. You can also turn to friends and family members for both practical and emotional support. Throughout the caregiving process, you will need to balance your own needs with those of the person you are caring for in order to function at your best.
