More about this group

Caring for the Caregiver

When you are caring for a loved one who has been diagnosed with a chronic or terminal disease, it can be overwhelming and stressful. While there may be resources for the patient, who cares for the caregiver? It is so important for you to manage your stress, take care of your self and your health, and get support from others in a similar situation. Never underestimate the compassion and support from other people who are experiencing a similar situation.
