Are you a caregiver for a stroke or heart attack victim? Are you dealing with caregiver stress or fatigue and looking for support?
A majority of us will be caregivers at some point in our lives. As loved ones age, debilitating disease, chronic health conditions or simple frailty can soon follow. While some employ paid providers, most rely on unpaid assistance from families, friends and neighbors. Assuming the duties of a caregiver can be extremely stressful. The caregiver burden can lead to fatigue and ultimately over time can cause depression.
