Reply To: How can you help your caregiver from burning out?

The caregivers are really not sure what to expect or how to trend, with an understand that the survivors world has changed and not left with NOW WHAT?.

I had my sister supporting me through this period. I remember being watched constantly, waiting for me to require something or  frequently asked if I need anything and that irritated me. Found it comforting being alone then around others, which in turn was a frustration for her as she didn’t know how to help me anymore.

Caregivers really have it hard, appreciation goes a long way to recharge their caring heart.
