Caregiver Support Groups and why you should join one
Being a caregiver to a sick loved one can be difficult, time consuming and emotionally draining. It's also hard to find others who know what you're going through, but keeping all the thoughts, feelings, concerns and pains inside can lead to burnout, sickness and depression.
Caregivers, like those they care for, need to be kept well - mentally and emotionally. Taking time for yourself is critical, but so is finding like-minded people to talk to. So where do you turn when you just need to vent? There are caregiver support groups all over the country, if you know where to look.
