Caring for a loved one in need is rewarding however the demands of caregiving increases over time and becomes very overwhelming. Caregiver burnout is very common and can take a toll on your physical, mental and social life. Having a strong support system and knowing what resources are available to you and your loved one will help to alleviate the caregiver burnout.
