Are you a caregiver?
The job of caring for someone with a physical or mental disability, such as Alzheimer’s disease, is one of the biggest challenges you will ever face. In addition to juggling your own schedule, you are constantly on call, making sure your loved one’s needs are met. In general, caregivers are concerned about ensuring their loved one is properly cared for and receiving the best medical treatment, all without spending down their life savings.
Often, caregivers put their needs on the back-burner, which leads to burn out, becoming overwhelmed, and the possibility of these feelings increasing over time. Although caring for an aging loved one can be extremely difficult, there are tools available to help caregivers make the right decisions while also taking care of themselves.
