Unearned Guilt Intrinsic to Most Caregiving

If ever there’s a group of people who suffer deeply from unearned guilt it’s caregivers. Whether you’re the parent of a vulnerable adult, an adult child of aging parents or the spouse of a vulnerable adult, you are bound to have your “if only” times where you are sucked into the quicksand of guilt.

Staying mired in guilt is counterproductive for you as well as your care receiver.
