Caring for You

What you experience as a caregiver will change over time. And depending on your age, your own personal situation and your relationship to your loved one, your challenges and experiences will be unique. However, you are not alone! In this section we include tips from people who have been there on what you will experience related to emotions, physical changes and more. The most important thing to remember is that the person you are taking care of is only as good as you are; if you do not take care of yourself, you will not be able to take care of your loved one.
