As a Caregiver, you have a busy and challenging role. The welfare, health, and happiness of a loved one or friend, unable to care for themselves, rests on your shoulders. You can't prepare for the responsibility with it usually being thrust upon you without warning. There are no obvious guidelines for your particular situation as no two people needing care are the same.
With no previous experience, you will find it difficult to source support especially as you won't yet have discovered what support you need. Your confidence can take a big hit when interacting with Drs. and therapists who ask questions you haven't yet thought about.
Through all this, it becomes easy to envelop yourself in the needs of another and forget your own needs. Relationships with friends and family can easily become strained and the support you had hoped for can slowly fade.
This e-book will give a brief understanding of how relationships can become strained, how to strengthen them, and how to make sure you care for yourself.
