Being a caregiver for a loved one is an honorable action that can require a lot of patience, care, and love. If you have undertaken the role of caregiver for someone you love, you likely have realized that it is a full-time job with many responsibilities. Though caregiving is the perfect way to show your loved one you care and appreciate them, it can take a toll on your personal life and potentially, your health.
