Caregiving is a selfless act; it requires immense empathy, bravery and compassion, and it is incredibly rewarding. However, that doesn’t mean that caregiving comes without struggles. In fact, those caring for a person living with Alzheimer’s or dementia face a greater risk for anxiety and depression.
Why? Often, it’s due to a lack of self-care, stress and personal barriers. Franciscan Ministries is sharing a free downloadable guide with tips for caregivers to identify their barriers, manage stress, find support and set achievable goals.
