Providing a loved one with care is an admirable, yet demanding task. Caregiving can quickly cause one to become overworked and overstressed, and oftentimes, family caregivers also have a full-time job and their own family to take care of. However, family caregivers will continue to provide their loved one with care and assistance, because they want to help and don’t want their loved one to struggle. Being a family caregiver is essentially like having another job. Family caregivers use their free time to provide care instead of relaxing and partaking in fun activities. This can cause such individuals to become stressed, lack sleep, develop physical health problems, and even depression.
