A Plea to Caregivers; Don’t Go it Alone

As a caregiver helping or supporting someone you love, do you go it alone, request assistance from others, or wait (hopefully) for outside offers of help? Caregivers, typically, choose the independent path for various reasons: a sense of obligation or responsibility for their loved one; a resistance to hand over their parent to another person to provide necessary care; an embarrassment to ask for help; or a preference to keep this type of personal matter quiet. Furthermore, family caregivers can also believe that working independently is the only answer as there are limited resources available to help them.
