the guilt of being well while a loved one is ill, to
wondering what they did to cause this to happen to
their loved one. There are caregivers who feel they
cannot take another moment of their plight, who are
having difficulty with their responsibilities and do
not know how to ask for assistance from other people
or from a higher power. Almost any issue a person
faces in adversity is a compounded issue for a
Caregiver. Also, see RELATIONSHIP RELATED ARTICLES,

assist caregivers with elder loved ones, are
