One of the strains on the caregiver strain index is the inconvenience of caring for another person. Eliminating all inconveniences is not a likely option so we must find ways to help you minimize the inconveniences in your unique caregiving situation.
Your loved one needs your help but it’s not always when you’re readily available. For some of you, it might come during a busy work day, or for others while relaxing with friends.
If you are being constantly pulled away from your life, the situation will become dreadful, and will likely prevent you from putting your best foot forward. How you deal with these situations will have a significant effect on your overall well-being.
