Download file (9 MB, PDF)

Providing emotional support and physical care to someone who is ill can be a satisfying and rewarding journey. It can also be challenging, especially if you need to balance a job, family and housework on top of caring for the person who is ill (care recipient). It may even lead to feeling stressed, angry and guilty.

Caregivers may think they can (and should) do everything by themselves. However, this can lead to burnout. It is important for caregivers to get practical and emotional support. Sharing your concerns with others will help relieve stress. It may also give you a different and positive way of looking at the challenges of being a caregiver.
