Caregivers are often so concerned with caring for their relative’s needs that they lose sight of their own well-being. Statistics show that the number one feeling a caregiver has is sadness or depression due the act of caregiving. I often hear family members say “I’m not a caregiver because all I do is help with shopping, or laundry.” But you are a caregiver. The definition of a caregiver is “someone who attends to the needs of another individual.”
