Caregiving is an exhausting job. We all know this to be true for elderly care. Caregivers are often overlooked and underappreciated for the work they do especially caring for those with dementia. But it can be so fulfilling when you see someone who needs help getting back on their feet again.

The definition, duties, and responsibilities of caregiving are discussed as well as how to prevent burnout and fatigue. For additional resources, make sure to visit the family caregiver alliance.
