You are a caregiver.  Your loved one needs care.  Who is the act of caregiving about, you or them?

If you are in the right mindset, caregiving is about your loved one not you.  When caregiving becomes about you it is likely you have failed to make a plan or set boundaries.  Overwhelmed caregivers become angry and exhausted.  At this point in caregiving situations, it is time to consult an advocate able to return perspective to the caregiving situation and to offer options to reduce overwhelm.  Because caregiving is not about you — it’s about those for whom you provide care.
