Family Caregivers meet at least
3 of 5 characteristics:
1. We don't apply.
2. We don't get training.
3. We don't get paid.
4. We don't get vacations.
5. We don't get benefits.
Because of the stress these characteristics place on a family caregiver, we have to be extremely aware of the need for self-care and time management.
Unless we put on our own oxygen mask first, we become incapable of taking care of others.
