Caregivers are only human. We generally get into caregiving for our elders because of our love for them. However, diseases such as dementia, Parkinson’s disease and strokes, can take such a huge toll on the elder that we barely recognize the personality of the person we are caring for. They can become so difficult to manage, care can be so exhausting, guilt over not being able to make things better for them can be so overwhelming, that we don’t know where to turn. How do we cope when we can no longer cope?
