CAREGIVING IS MORE COMPLICATED THAN YOU THINK – AND NO TWO STORIES ARE THE SAME

Canadian Caregiver Stories

Rosalynn Carter famously said, “There are only four kinds of people in the world: those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers.” While caregiving touches us all at some point in our lives, often attention is focused on the individual in need of care. This can leave the caregiver’s needs unrecognized, making the role more difficult.
