November is National Caregiver Month.
Caregiving can be one of the most rewarding jobs. By watching over your loved one, you’re strengthening the bond between the two of you and you’re giving him or her something to look forward to each day. But as pleasing as it may be to lend a helping hand, you can’t forget to look after yourself. The patience and understanding that’s necessary for caregiving may turn into a stress overload, which can impact your own health and well-being.
