Many times caregivers become frustrated and just give up. Most caregivers are friends or family members who are untrained to provide care. It’s no different than a lay person trying to repair a car engine. A car mechanic can get the work done in half the time with accurate results and at a reasonable cost. Sometimes caregivers just spin their wheels. When you are frustrated and ready to give up, ask for help. Consult a professional, go to a support group, ask for help, find a way. You don’t have to be an isolated caregiver and you might be surprised just how reassuring help can be.
