Caregivers are called on to take on superhuman tasks, but they are only individuals like us. They need help just as the patient does and that is our responsibility, in some ways their journey is even more difficult than the loved one who is the patient. Caregiving impacts the health of the caregiver; it changes lives, circles of friends and many relationships. All of this will be explored in detail as we look at the lives of caregivers and how we can help them cope.
