Caring for a loved one is not easy or simple, and often becomes an added burden for families who are unprepared. According to the Family Caregiver Alliance, about a third of American adults will spend an average of 20 hours per week caring for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member. As your loved one ages, delivering care can become increasingly more demanding of your time and energy, essentially becoming a full-time job. Delivering care will eventually take a physical and emotional toll on your health, as well as leave the relationship between you and your loved one strained.
