Definition of Caregivers
Caregivers provide help to another person in need. The person receiving care may be an adult - often a parent or a spouse - or a child with special medical needs. Some caregivers are family members. Others are paid. They do a lot of things.

There is no illness that is not exacerbated by stress.

Definition of Caregivers

Caregiving is hard, and caregivers of chronically ill people often feel stress. They are "on call" 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you're caring for someone with mental problems like Alzheimer's disease it can be especially difficult. Support groups can help. (Source: medlineplus.gov)

Testimonials

As a nurse, she is so kind and approachable. I never worried about ‘bothering’ her with questions or concerns. She always made time to explain the medical side of my chronic disease.
